Stillborn

 

 ‘Stillborn’

Oa4s

17apr > 4 May

at Parallel Oaxaca, Oaxaca, México

 

Stillborn is a fictional short film produce entirely within the space of Parallel Oaxaca. For the production of the film, the gallery will be converted into a modular film set made as some number of haunted rooms. Reflecting and expanding on the tropes and archetypes of a ghost story, the film will deal with the major themes of invisibility and the libidinal body.

A continuously elusive and unspoken narrative centers on the ghost’s comings and goings.
Unaware of its own death, the ghost experiences a confusion that leads it to witness unlived memories and future impossibilities. Suspended in a non­state of ~Limbo~, it is uncertain whether the ghost is ever the authority of its own actions and representations, aber warum? Cradled in the body’s mind – things are written only to be refuted and forgotten. The room is the body, the objects are the organs, the always­ongoing flesh of narrative.

The room cannot be exited; Exiting is simultaneously (re)entering­again.

The resulting video will be screened in the set for the remaining weeks, leaving the space in a state where its fact and fiction are superimposed.

The never ending flesh is elastic, and regenerating with relentless desire.
