original title: Hmotná skutečnost
country: Czech Republic
year: 2020
running time: 9 min.


A love story of two ill-fated statues filmed from their own subjective perspectives. This film explores a common problem amongst sculpture students, whose works often have nowhere to go and are left to be destroyed as a result. The refined audio track is complemented by minimalist dialogue. When art becomes a burden made in vain, this mere solid matter becomes disowned by its creator and cast loose.
