Uncertain Geographies, 2015
Video-Installation, HD Video, 15 min.

The video Uncertain Geographies tells the story of a landscape that is buried deep in the sediments of memory. Two performers try to materialize the physiognomy of a landscape that is not accessible in reality. Using digital geo mapping, the geographies of the Donbass and the Crimea are redrawn and explored. The work addresses forms of appropriation and withdrawal, expressing an artistic desire to liberate a landscape from the consequences of sovereignty. A dance segment referring to Stravinsky’s Rites of Spring breaks with the part of the film based on language, establishing a connection between the Rites of Spring and the digital »storage space of all memories« in which dying as well as remembering represent a recurring conflict.
