Fanclub’s idol Dorte Olesen on Swedish television
Huggande Kvinnor (Women Chopping Wood) is an installation by Dorte Olesen, figuring women over age 50 chopping wood in urban spaces. The premiere was in Stockholm, Sergels torg in 2007, and was there after performed in Malmö and Berlin in 2009. In the short film Kvinnor som hugger ved, director Malin Skjöld takes us behind the scenes to follow the women, their companionship and the work with the installation. Also see the second part, a short film about their work with the installation Skottkärringar (Women pushing wheelbarrows). Beautiful and simple – Women power!
