Nowadays, fauna and flora are inextricably entangled with the industry. A small movement study as a serious but tongue-in-cheek parable on Muybridge’s pioneering work with the “moving” image.

Pylons in a drab grey landscape. The black shape of a wolf hound is running from left to right. The landscape pulses to the sound of a disturbing electrical frequency. A wild threat? The animal is fast, but it’s surrounded by the shadows of a man-made construction. Fauna and flora today are inextricably entangled with the industrial – a small parable on and wink to Eadweard Muybridge and his movement studies.

A young woman returns to her childhood home in Montenegro after seventeen years. It’s dilapidated, left-behind objects are covered in foil, family pictures still hanging on the walls. A personal and performative journey into the unconscious. Memories emerge layer by layer, ghosts of the war that stand in the way of a new departure of the country. Abandoned construction sites are everywhere, like silent witnesses of stagnation, while Chinese companies invest in rebuilding the infrastructure.
