It Was A Cinema arises from the desire to explore the relationship between hate and fear and to translate into art how the two co-exist, are voiced and take shape. The installation is composed of a painting on paper onto which a video loop is projected. The viewer is confronted with the voicing of a universal feeling, which becomes particular through entering the work itself. This site-specific composition constructs and controls the complicated realm of empathy and daily experiences around the notions of feelings.
