On The Threshold + talk with Marta Echaves
The three films featured in this session explore the boundaries between body and state that are implicit in the idea of the nature reserve or space. The performative aspect predominates in all three. The body in front of the camera, or its absence, reveals what has been erased in these places and serves as a vehicle for past and present experiences as well as those yet to come.
