Rauma Art Museum

Anna Eriksson: M – The Rituals of a Lonely Bitch on display from September 5 – January 31, 2021

The grotesque first movie M by artist Anna Eriksson (born in 1977, Rauma) was a sensational success at the international film festival in 2018. Eriksson made the movie mostly herself: she wrote the script and directed the movie and composed the music. In the movie, Eriksson plays the provocative role of M. In The Rituals of a Lonely Bitch Eriksson returns to the role of M. The exhibition consists of new art works, where Eriksson continues to explore the theme of sexuality and death by shattering the iconography of popular culture.

The exhibition contains intense picture and sound material. It is not recommended for sensitive viewers or underage people without adult supervision.
