  • a Performance
  • by Karel Doing
  • Description (english) An expanded cinema performance, handmade in Labóratorio da Torre in Porto in 2023. The work was conceived and crafted in situ: conceptually, materially and practically. A multi-layered hypnotic sequence that brings the unobtrusive presence of urban nature to the foreground, revealing the highly specific ornamentation that shapes the urban landscape. This footage has been edited in camera, deliberately pushing the film material toward the limits of its recording capability. The frames seem to be torn apart by a primal light that both energises and destroys the images.
