Our new installation, titled Redemption Room, and our documentary short film Sisyphus 2.0 will play at Colorado University Boulder, on December 1st - 2nd, as a part of the collective show DISAVOWAL.
Redemption Room is a 7-channel installation, made of television monitors, cameras and teleprompters. It proposes a look at personal failure in the public eye, as seen, heard and read in an archive of political speeches broadcast over the past century, and collected from open online sources.
Drawing on Albert Camus’ eponymous text, Sisyphus 2.0 is a visual compendium of humanity’s search for meaning. Made of real surveillance footage, the film assumes an omniscient perspective, beginning as a series of quotidian assemblages of ‘a day in a life’ of the global citizens, embraced by a voice-over retelling of the Sisyphus myth. (Andrei Tanăsescu, BIEFF 2017).
