HYPERMIGRATIONS

How can the language of art increase a holistic reading of migrations? How can we dismantle the idea of exclusive rights to land, origins, movement and customs?

Hypermigrations is a narrative (video)installation which takes the viewer through the very idea of migration and its European history with focus on Balkans region. The author explores migrations as fundamental force of nature and culture and deliver the narrative using a voiceover, ambient sound and a map transformed into an hourglass. The viewer is invited to join the work in a calming and dark situation, and be provoked by continuity, persistence and presence of migrations in creating civilizations, reshaping cultures and shifting centers of power on the continent of Europe.
The work calls for an understanding of migration not as a political or politicized problem, but as a temporal synthesis of complex merging or friction between communities.
The context of the work derives from Moving Chronotopes, a set of fourteen works dealing with different states, situations and reflections caused by a process of changing place and country of living.
