2001 Displacement/Returning home-The Willow Tree

The Willow Tree

 

Video installation

2001

 

The viewers enter the dark hall where a large projection fills an entire wall behind glasses. The movie is reflected in several time bigger dimensions on the wall behind viewers. In fact it put the viewer inside the movie by putting him or her shadow under the shadow of the willow tree. Super 8 family movies of events that might have happened under the same willow tree are displayed on TVs that are installed behind those glasses inside suitcases.

This is about displacement, a migration across time and geography.

Past and Presents, here and there, were mixed in this installation with combination of Super 8 and Digital movies, Shadows and Viewers.
