Exercises of listening

2016, b&w video loop 15’0’’, silent room installation

A documentary film about landscape exhibited in a soundproof black box for just one viewer at the time. The film is a video-collage of scenes from existing works of cinematography. The resulting fifteen-minute video, drawn from war films, deliberately uses scenes without explicit violence, focuses on landscapes and nature. The video brings the latent aggression presented in the image. The video lacks sound. Because the video is exhibited in a soundproof black box, the viewer can only hear their own physiologic processes, which accelerates the already induced tension.
