REQUIEM
2017
Full HD video | 16:9 | 3.40 min. | b/w | sound



Mozart's unfinished Requiem in D minor accompanies a hike through an idyllic mountain landscape. The visual language is reminiscent of early romantic paintings. In the luggage a blank surface - a rectangle. An ecstatic gesture interrupts the wanderer's movement. The perfection of the geometric form meets the rough surface of nature. The pathetic soundtrack of the hike is reaching its peak while the narration of Requiem culminates in an unexpected performance.
