Late December 2012 / EE
Short doc, the outcome of my artistic residency in Ptarmigan (Tallinn, Eesti) during October – December 2012. It is the result of more than a hundred interviews that I made (only a small part of them were recorded as of interviewees request, see video) in the area of Pelgulinn. The population of the area is mostly Russian, Belorussian and of other slavonic providence, the bigger part of elderly and middle-aged people do not speak (well) Estonian, most of them are laborers, cleaners, supermarket or bazaar peddlers. The younger generation though is making it their home – most of them speak fluent Estonian and have Estonian nationality. Still a lot of those interviewed admitted to be in a ghetto – like situation. My main question on every occasion was if this is their home / what is home. I myself am still looking for the answer.
SUM : A PIANO LESSON
Late November 2012 / LT
“SUM” started out sometime in Spring 2012, while being sucked up into psychotherapy’n’stuff, a difficult period which lasted for six months, but was way less difficult than all that preceded it. I even tried using it as a video projection during my life gig in Mėnuo Juodaragis 2013 festival. During my residency in Klaipėda KKKC, September 2012, I sort of went through all the same feelings I had while filming the video, and it was the right time and place to record the sound for this video. I guess it was one of the most difficult videos I’ve done. I know why. But I won’t tell ya.
