26th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Pavel Mrkus
original title: Observatory.01
country: Czech Republic
running time: 10 min.
synopsisThe elaborate audiovisual installation is a kind of imaginary "trialogue" between cosmic bodies in our solar system, specifically Mars, Mercury, and Venus. The supreme sound and visual rendering defined by technology contrast with the poetic diction pervading interplanetary communication. The universe may be a desolate place, but it's the proverbial human touch that gives it so much more.
„Although I work with video, it’s primarily image, not film. What’s essential is always radiance“
biographyPavel Mrkus (1970) is a visual artist and educator whose work explores the relationship between image and sound in specific temporal and spatial contexts. His works presented at exhibitions often take scientific discourse as a starting point, interrupted by elements of narrative, play, and interaction.
