Miroslav Stakić: The Wall

In literature, the notion of wall often represents the symbols of progress, protection, victory, revolution, obstacle, division, casualty, holiness..

The author of the video aims at the subjective perceptioning and interpretation of literary constructions operating with the semantics of a wall. Forging deeply into the observer’s ego as well as constructing a type of narrative connected to it, this video aims for the observer to subtly defragment and decode associative narrative present in “The Wall”.

The associations encountered in the video cognitively connect the observer with the actual, global and socio-political constellation and its subjective readings. The presence of the irritating sound of the Geiger Muller’s counter and the author’s occasional scene appearance, indirectly turn attention to the negative, threatening presence of an artist and art within the constructive, “wall” elements of society based on the political power.
