Horizontal [1997]

super-8 film transferred to digital video
double loop on two monitors, not synchronised
no sound

Two figures roll in the street in a state of intoxication which limps their bodies and thereby also protects them. It is as if they roll towards each other in a never ending movement of descent towards the most basic. The filmed material is always an observation, registered where the situation allowed it.
Shot in Aalst, Belgium 1997
