Experiencing Interruptions?

Broken Visions

A metaphoric videopoem without spoken or written words. About the soul and body within the environments we create and life in Entangle in a curtain broken visions.
A place, you know--one that transcends time and space and visions of what you're supposed to resemble, and the limits placed by the digits of your mortal age.Whatever you decide to do, whatever you decide to see, to feel, there are no restraints
There is no fear, confusion, or awkwardness,no doubts of not belonging, of not deserving to exist in such a place where your vulnerable soul and body can be pure,and being able to thrive.You don't have keep a broken vision to hold on to yourself,you don't have to feign ignorance or enlightenment. You can forever venture out here,to a unknown, misty, thriving envi-ronment far away,you can do things you never got to do,for you don't have to pretend to be someone you aren't. You don't have to have a vision each day questioning every single telltale of life. You don't have to look anymore with broken visions about why the world can be such a place of inhumanity and ignorance

Director Statement

Through my life situation I lived and worked in different locations and countries. Among others, Germany, Ireland, Spain, The Netherlands, Argentinia, Australia, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Myanmar, China, Taiwan, Russia and Armenia. This kind of life style and art career had at the end a great impact about my vision and concepts as an artist. To be on the move, curiosity of crossing boundaries , nowhere feeling home and a certain restlessness became an important source of insperation. Themes in my work have a vision towards identity, relations (between humans and humans-environment) ,transition, boundaries, lost, loneliness, sexualy topics, inner strife, time, destruction, death. Accordingly I pay close intention to the candid subtle details within the environments we create or life in. My interpretations are at the end embedded experiments through changing observations and analysis of our visible and non visible environments and human behavior.
