PROJECTS, CURRENT AND PAST:
A new narrative about the city of Stockholm, about the people and their identities, through a close reading of pizza menus, the names and the contents. One of the central pieces of the show is a large print called Pizza Moon, in which a grey moon with dark shadings is framed by a large black square. If you go close you will see that the moon is made up of names of pizzerias and pizzas: more than 300 000 characters and more than 500 pizza menus. The result is a kind of concrete poetry about longing but also the genius loci, the spirit of the place where the pizza is made and eaten, manifested in names like St Erik Eye Hospital or University College. Here you can also find madness and longing in names such as Inferno, Armagedon or The Beach.
Amore Nostro Modo: an artist book project. Odysseus en route to Arlanda, Ösmo next to Palermo, Margherita meets Sjuksköterskan. By juxtaposing images from pizzerias and other fast food restaurants with poetry based on pizza names found in some of the more than five hundred pizza menus collected in the greater Stockholm area 2017-2018, Dan Lageryd’s ambition is to depict a city and its inhabitants in a time of increased movement and migration.
En serie fönsterfaksimil och en femton minuters odyssé genom lunch-Stockholm. Om reflektioner, snabbmat, arbete, ätande, migration och staden.
On reflections, fastfood, work, eating, migration and the city. A series of approximately reconstructed lunches. Multilayered film sequences made out of signage/view/interior [≈reflections/window].
Ett filmiskt bevarande av en motorled [Essingeleden], en arkivering av dess yta. Skannad asfalt, emulsion mot emulsion, grus som pixel, kilometer i timmen kontra bildrutor per sekund.
A filmic preservation of a highway system. A scan of the asphalt, emulsion to emulsion, pebble to pixel, strip to strip, kph to fps. In part an abstract film with a variable speed reflecting the rhythm of traffic.

LÄGENHET / APARTMENT
Screening version: 6 min 11 sek. Video collage. Available in both screening version and as installation piece.
An apartment unfolded. The soundtrack consisting of the sound of an empty flat mixed with the sounds that seep in from outside.
A / B
Sjutton trappor uppför/nedför en brandtrappa. En skildring av kroppen i rummet, om kroppen och tyngdlagen. / 17 floors up/down a fire staircase. About life, about gravity and physicality.
"Dan Lageryd's video A / B shows a seventeen floors passage down a narrow staircase, followed by an ascent up a parallel staircase. The staircases depicted in A / B are isolated spaces, illuminated only by artificial light and with fireproof steel doors on every other landing. An emergency exit empty of personal belongings, the setting for the video does not so much indicate a place as it does a mere form. A form which, at the same time as providing the film's subject, outlines its choreography. On moving down the stairs, A / B displays the halting movement of two overlapping frames trying to meet each other, constantly reproducing the secluded space of the recording. While the incessant sound of footsteps on concrete keeps wiring back the viewer to the physical urban setting, one is tempted to wonder what kind of space it is that the video actually stages – rather than depicting any specific place, A / B seems to be offering its viewer a document over the ongoing process of producing and reproducing the very space of the recording."
3 min, 51 sek. Video collage, 3537 x 1261. Loop.
A trip repeated ten times, each time with the camera pointed in a different direction. The panoramic reconstruction leaves the surroundings disjointed, both in time and space and the static nature of the architecture is no longer reliable. The noise of traffic and the engine multiplied by ten makes a roaring soundtrack.
5 min, 23 sek. Video collage. Available in screening version or loop.
An afternoon on the motorway, going nowhere. See the sun set over southern Stockholm's industrial area in 10 journeys made into one - a two hour drive pieced together into a five minute panoramic video collage. The image is constantly expanding and contracting, changing speed and focal point in an effort to keep time and space together.
Acquired by the National Public Arts Council (Statens Konstråd) in 2012.
THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND
1 min, 58 sek. Video collage.
Documenting the view from a hotelroom on the 13th floor overlooking Shanghai, the film concurrently presents six different views, filmed at six consecutive nights. The accompanying sound is a mix of racket from the street and noise from within the room, sirenes, car horns and fireworks mixed with television news on economy and a childrens choir singing ”This Land Is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie.
LÄNK TILL VIMEO
KULTURHUSET 20080115 13:00-17:30
5 min / 1 min. Video collage
Filmed from twenty-five different positions on different levels inside Kulturhusets wide glass facade, the movie reconstructs an afternoon on Sergels Torg - from daylight to dusk - in just a few minutes. Given the width of the image and the time it spans, this short film can be said to contract time and expand space... The soundtrack is comprised of the aggregated sound of the building and its visitors.
