Experiencing Interruptions?


The poem Ostriches was written as an homage to David Bowie's song Heroes, as my personal reaction to the state of apathy, silence, acceptance of absurd and humiliation without raising our voice which have been present in my country for last period of time.
The video itself was made under even more absurd circumstances when the whole world stopped due to the pandemic when I, lacking the possibility to move and film freely, used a BBC cc video, decomposed it and recreated a visual answer as a personification of this state.
My aim was to research the opportunities which widely recognized content could offer as a base for artistic expression.

Director Statement

I believe that poetry is the most essential mode of literary expression and that the video as a powerful means of visual arts with a wide range of experimenting opportunities is its natural companion. Joined, they bring together a unique form empowered by elements from the different art fields.
Also, I am positive that poetry film or video is one of the most appropriate art forms of contemporary times.
