Ans Mertens - 'Sunday’ + Lina Laraki - 'PLANT.MOV'
Ans Mertens - ‘Sunday’ (2019, 10’) AVANT PREMIERE
Set in a natural reserve ‘Sunday’ treats the frame as a path, guiding the spectator’s eye like the wanderer is guided along sights.However, the frame hits the tension between the rough landscape of the heather and its cultivation.
Lina Laraki - ‘PLANT.MOV’ (2019,20’) AVANT PREMIERE
After all human life disappeared from earth, a plant recalls its dream about a contemplative 'last observer'. The dream is cinéed to us by a bored artificial intelligence. A dystopian narrative tries to reconnect us to possible lost affects.
