Bloody Minerals - AOHM/1/TAL - Analysis of Organic Heritage Materials, 1st Study: The Altar of Liberty
The video reconstructs affective glitches that may take place on the level of identification with a culture, a state, a territory, a history, an ideology. Its narrative unfolds through landscape imagery, maps, CGI molecular structures as well as traditional folk art to draw fictional links between Greece and Ireland.
A fictional pseudo-scientific research proposes that mineral concentration in the blood of certain ethnic groups corresponds to the local landscape and political culture. Touching on territoriality, colonialism, supra-/national identification and scientism, the video explores the notion of the Spirit of Revolt as a mythical emancipatory demand and traces affective boundaries across the European territory and culture.
