Filmoteka Muzeum

Hic et nunc is a study of manipulation of the film medium. Against the backdrop of a blue sky Wojtek Niedzielko is cycling to the rhythm of a Portuguese song. However, what seems to be happening here and now – as the title has it – is in fact an illusion.

The bicycle turns out to be an exercise bike, and the passed trees are just mock-ups moved by the other members of Azorro. The artists lay bare our confidence in film illusion and play on the schemes that organise our perception.
