Inland Freaks

 HD video, 14 min, 2014

The video Inland Freaks explores the particular atmosphere of family relationships. Oscillating between intimacy and distance, brother and sister trust each other just enough to be honest, demanding and unfair to each other. They want to confess to each other that they are not human and that they have known this about each other all along, but they don´t know how to start. By collaging fragments of authentic dialogue with scripted fictional elements the boundaries of what is real and what isn’t become blurred. The melodramatic encounter takes place somewhere in space, but the illusion of a three dimensional space is constantly disturbed by the camera zooming in on the surfaces of objects and bodies. Nothing stays the same—both the bodies and the environment they inhabit perpetually implode and explode into one another.
