MELANCHOLIA


Melancholia is a trailer-remake of the film Melancholia by Lars von Trier. I used the soundtrack from the original movie to mix it with old VHS materials of my parents. Von Trier raises essential existential issues surrounding human life: What is a catastrophe? How does a person react to the impending doom? I decided to create a peculiar omen of THE END - a real ending of love between my parents intertwined with a fictional story of the end of the planet we live on. After all, I think of The Infernal Machine as a programmed catastrophe into human life, one that a person has no influence or whatsoever.

The Infernal Machine exhibition was a cooperation project between 280A Artist Collective and the Athens Photo Festival. Taking place within the official festival program of the Athens Photo Festival 2018 located at Beton 7, we present a collective exhibition of contributed works that refer to the theme of the Infernal Machine.
