Ghost in the wall departs from an experimental investigation about coincidences, leading quickly towards the blurry and dark world of dreams, ghosts and fears.
It was created and inspired in several travels to Taiwan, where ghosts are omnipresent. The climax is hungry ghost month, when the gate opens and spirits come to take over the human world and mess around like hell. Humans live in function of the ghosts’ desires and lunatic demands and even change their habits and are restricted in their actions.
This works mixes the physical sensations of common panics, nightmares and existential fears with the feeling of living in a very dark place during ghost month where only Pokemon catchers illuminate the blackness of the night.
Formally it is an animated theatrical Mini-Object and Media Art performance.
BEHIND THE SCENES/INSIDE THE GUTS
A magical sequence of weird occurrences. Rotating platforms, comic-like objects and characters, loops, sound-scape and moving shadows are combined to create a magic experience and letting the viewer dive into the improbable world of ghostly- dark and frightening-dreamy coincidences, where all seems connected and everything and nothing seems possible.
The shadows of the past. The shadows of the present. Our own shadows melting with those of the others. The ghosts of our own fears… a chaos of interwoven situations….
An installation about the non cuantificable, about very old inner fears and outer projections of common panics.
