Absence She SaidGeography

In the transformative year of 1989, this artist duo from the former Yugoslavia made a pointed statement about then current events with their video Geography. Countering the course of important events, they contemplated simple things (rain, faces, streets) from which a relationship to the world becomes recognizable, which they then shaped further in Absence She Said. In accord with their statement, “Life is very precious even right now,” they developed a melancholy index of subjective foreignness in the world.
