White Ikea furniture, flowers on the table, the picture on the wall, a cuckoo clock … a home that could be anywhere reduced to the most essential elements — and a breeding ground for terrible pain and suffering at the same time.

In his work presented for the first time in Sweden, Markus Öhrn examines the banality and brutality of domestic violence without any dialogue.

Together with his artistic team he takes an expedition to the dark side of intimate relationship patterns, role models and gender stereotypes.

Markus Öhrn worked with real statistics and based his work around cases of domestic violence that went to court. He used this material to develop a five-hour performance for two performers and a pianist.

Markus Öhrn / INSTITUTET Domestic Violence can be seen at MTD Friday 27 September and Saturday 28 September 2019!
