Kronstadt · 2014

video · PAL · loop · 1:20 min

The main part of the footage for Kronstadt 2014 was made by
the Gulf of Finnland in Kronstadt, Russia, and has been combined
with studio sequences of a ballet dancer from the St Petersburg
Mariinski Ballet as well as found footage from the internet, a TV
advertisement for light and heavy firearms.
In the advert a speaker voice uses music terminology phrases, such
as mezzoforte, while bosting the gun’s capacity at the same time
as a piano is being shot to pieces, which is shown in a cynically
aesthetic slow motion shot.
