Video Installation “The Negotiation”
2010, HD 2 channels video, color & b/w, 38’00
Our fellow Azin Feizabadi and Kaya Behkalam will take part in the exhibition “Polyphonies“ curated by Véronique Leblanc with their project “The Negotiation“ in Montreal.
In the video installation “The Negotiation” a group of actors comes together on a film set analogous to the architecture of a conference room – a round table. The script: an unnamed visual/textual three-act drama on an undefined revolutionary situation. Within the working process: directing, reading, rehearsal and embodiment – in which the actors interpret their real and scripted characters – the borders between fictional and factual histories, individual and collective desires, projections and biographical backgrounds become more and more blurry.
