VÄRDEFULL I RYMDEN /VALUABLE IN SPACE
A project consisting of a 40 minute play written and performed by Elis Larson, Jacob Witzel and Jenny Palén Ejstes at Tv-Hole studios in June 2019 as well as a series of sculptures and objects some of which appear as scenography in the play.
The space philosopher's spring-tour tickets sold out. At the Acropolis solarium run by two poor magicians, they are forced to give up moral positions in order to survive. A farewell speech is held for Carl Martin who flew too close to the sun and like Ikaroz was burned to death. Who should be given the role of Monkey Valuable? As an actor, playing a monkey is both demanding and difficult. All I want is to feel free and loved.
The play is about life beyond the system and human value. Is it possible to feel valuable as a person outside the system? Monuments in relation to life after death and a fear of feeling insignificant. Conquer and dominate vs. the value of the individual.

EVA ÄR ORMEN I PARADISET
A collaboration between Éva Mag and Jenny Palén.
A series of work consisting of sculpture, scenography and performance.
We work based on composition, objects and shapes - Building an image where the visual expression is the main character. Not the story or the actors. We function just as figures as in a dollhouse transferred to different situations and tasks. The visual expression on stage is based on ideas of a woman, how these roles are being portrayed.

Installation made of different objects and sculptures.
Jenny Paléns world is striking and she sharpens all things pathos to its point, to its most dramatic, drastic and direct form. With laconic nostalgia for an age yet to come, she excavates into the future, into memory, and memory to come, suggesting that the judgement, which will be passed down on our time will be unsparing. In the wake of secularisation, people's need for an elevated meaning in life remains open and disgruntled.
