Jesper Nordahl: Cricket
17 March–18 April 2004
Jesper Nordahl’s “Cricket” is a series of investigations concerning cricket, as an indirect expression of political action in a global arena. It is a process-implemented project and Index presents a first instalment: Jesper Nordahl’s interview with Zimbabwean cricketer Henry Olonga, recorded in Maidstone, England, in August 2003. Henry Olonga went into exile after demonstrating against the Zimbabwe regime’s human rights violations, during the Cricket World Cup 2003, hosted in South Africa and Zimbabwe. The exhibition also contains text, photography and drawing. Jesper Nordahl was educated at the Royal University College of Fine Arts in Stockholm, 1995 – 2000, and lives and works in Stockholm.
The film “Cricket” (2003) was made with support from IASPIS. The exhibition is part of an ongoing collaboration between Index and the Multicultural Centre in Botkyrka.

The Index exhibition programme was curated by Andreas Gedin, Helena Holmberg, Mats Stjernstedt and Niklas Östholm.
