some recollections of mortality - (originating medium HD Video 8') UK 2012. English.

(subtitled versions available in French and Spanish. text translation available in German.)


The film explores the presence and absence of the body in relation to contemporary film and popular media cultures.

The body is subjected to a criminal investigation in which the global concerns of the economy are placed on the individual.

The relation between narrative, text and visual imagery is revealed through a portrait of contemporary suburban lifestyle.

The global crisis acts as the 'perfect crime' - everyone is guilty. The film examines how our lifestyles lead us to be complicit in the global perfect crime, a crime in which we are all suspects searching for a witness, an other.

The film was made through a site-specific collaborative process in which the three artists erase the idea of the author to create a fictional subjectivity.
