TATHĀGATA 

DRAGOȘ BĂDIȚĂ

Vernisaj: 11 Aprilie 2014, ora 19

Video, 40 min

The film is a meditative essay composed of moments filmed in 2012: a day and a night spent around the lake called The Blue Lagoon. 

"Tathāgata" is a Sanskrit word which means "arriving at that"; "that" meaning being as such, the existence emptied of attributes and mental projections. The film is an attempt to arrive there, caused by the strange and sad encounter with a silent boy and by the terrifying night spent in the whistling wind and delusions.

"Tathāgata" is part of the exhibition "Disenchantment Day" organized by Salonul de Proiecte, Bucharest.
