Kunstkritikk: "Fremmedgjort i Lofoten", Line Ulekleiv - 18.09.13

"Pedro Gómez-Egaña has created a complelling work, simply a piece of magic.

While we sit in the dark room with light crackling through the old floor boards, the soundtrack unravels a story within a story. Perception fools us, and when we come out of this space something has changed –physically, but also at the edge of an estranged state..."
