excerpt of 3:39. Full film upon request.



The Vertical Bodies mediates between experiences of estrangement and perceptions of (self-) otherness evoked by the sensation of perpetual motion. The film is a journey of allegorical representations where the construction of a table resembles the creation of territories; heroes of the revolution reminiscent of stone alike ghosts; a rhinoceros reincarnate Sisyphus; a street screen depicts Prophecy; an aquatic world emulates the Crystal Palace of the contemporary world interior and The Great Division: culture(s), nature.
