stories of absence

The multimedia installation unfolds a selection of stories of absence. In response to an open call artists from all over the world shared their experiences of someone being there and not there at the same time. A collection of video, audio and dance created in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemics and housed in a folded architectural structure.
