Chopin Museum / Revolutionary Etude (2010) videoinstalation, 2' 26" (loop)
On five screens at a time, we can see scenes filmed with a subjective camera; the spectator has a sense of subjectivity, a feeling of being part of the action, place and time.
But action, places and time are looped and thus become mixed and intertwined.
At the same time, we traverse vast plains of Mazovia and Greater Poland, find ourselves in the autumn field, among the willows and come “face to face” with one of them.
All is framed by music, by its time; the composition ends and begins again, and ends and begins again…
The project was realised in cooperation with the set designer Boris Kudlička, to the order of the National Frederick Chopin Institute for the Frederick Chopin Museum in Warsaw (for the 200th anniversary of the composer’s birth).
Camera operator – Konrad Spyra
Etude Op. 10, No. 12 in C minor performed by Tatiana Shebanova.
