About the work

In the trilogy ULF goes Religious, sexuality and religion are explored. Part 1 focused on belonging and the necessity of togetherness, and lust and pain in the encounters between men. In part 2 Ulf Nilseng and his crew looks at love and plays with traditions, ceremonies and morals in the relationship between two people.


What is divine and pure love? The profane and the holy goes hand in hand in this queer and weightless room. ULF takes us on a journey outside of time, outside of space, and into a bodily universe of instincts and openness. In close collaboration with his team, Ulf continues to work on queer themes and ideas about freedom.
