Filmoteka Muzeum

Video footage of a performance that consisted in watching the same film material on two monitors. The artist addresses capitalism, surfeit, excess of information provided by the media. He underscores the impossibility of embracing two TV sets with one’s eyes and perception unless they show the very same thing. One eye looks left, the other eye looks right.

The image in the TV set goes on and off, the film continues. The artist eventually turns to the camera, he gazes into its lens and looks the viewers in the eyes.
