HanaHana

director: Naëm Baron, Melodie Mousset
original title: HanaHana
country: Switzerland
year: 2016

synopsis

A metaphorical journey through the physical awareness of your own body and its environment. In a post-apocalyptic-looking world, anthropomorphic fragments and clusters of molecules move through the physical landscape in which structures can replicate, returning to the existential question of what of the "I" remains. 

 

The installation was supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
