Karolina Breguła, Fire-Followers
video mockumentary, 49’
2013 produced by TOUCHfilms & Atlas Sztuki
In this hysterical deadpan pseudo-doc, artist Karolina Bregula constructs a scenario in a fictional Northern European city plagued by mysterious fires throughout its history. As the town’s peculiar inhabitants speculate about the cause of the fires, the way they may be prevented and the strange coincidence of where they occur, a possible conspiracy to destroy local art begins to emerge.
Magda Buczek, A mermaid of South Dakota
video and photo installation
This is a story about a girl. She wanted to be a mermaid. She packed her five shiny mermaid fins and moved from South Dakota to the Caribbean. From a place without an access to the sea to a place that is fond of sirens. When mermaiding she likes to sing loud. In the end, it’s a story about rock’n’roll, love for the ocean and female adolescent rituals.
