Distant Memory / new video

New video Distant Memory will be exhibited in Gallery Alkatraz from 14th to 16th of July 2014 in the MAP IN MOTION Festival. Opening is at 20:00 (14th of July). After that it will be published on this webpage.

 

Distant Memory is a video poetry, which speaks about the times that once were. It all starts with a random event which evokes narrator’s memories about the times before the disintegration of Yugoslavia and encourages reflection about what the war actually brings and how quickly people forget everything. The poem can be interpreted as a letter or a personal confession of an unknown man (it can be a sailor) written for the mighty Tito’s ship Galeb.  The ship has a symbolic value in the poem and through the variety of short scenes showing different details we can observe different interpretations and connections between real life and the imaginary world of poetry.
