Periphery of the History / History on the Periphery

video, 2.47 min


The video is a record of discarded statues from the period of socialism, which were moved from the center to the periphery - from Košice to the outskirts of Šaca. The statues express the transformation of the political situation and as a symbol of power become a symbol of helplessness against historical development. The video captures nature's indifference to political significance, the everyday ordinary day in the countryside. The sounds of the bells symbolically end the epoch of one dystopia.
