Decembers – performing a past, 2013

In the video Decembers – performing a past the women perform their stories simultaneously - without subtitles - and the film plays a major part in relation to the destabilisation of the strict archival style, leaving it pending between different interpretations and positions and remaining open to the viewer. By leaving out subtitles, the film might at first seem to exclude non-Polish speakers, but the possibility exists to immerge in the individual stories, which are presented as texts in the exhibition. If the viewer can overcome the wish for translation in relation to the film, one can simply let oneself follow the flow of the chorus-like soundtrack, which makes the exhibition space vibrate rhythmically, without it necessarily being alienating.
