RE_education is a video installation in a double projection in loop. It emanates reflections, images and words pulsing together with a sound construction. The Artwork emphasizes the necessity of thinking news strategies life and developing new understanding forms.
RE_education does an analogy to Refugee camps, human contention places that can be turned into re-education fields, once it obligates people there confined to adapt in a new way of living and being. As if in contention fields, Pandemic times has imposed an enclosure and introspection scenario highlighted by a long wait still with no answers about future, framework before which lifestyles re-learning and relations rethinking are needed.
A certain vertigo is mounted in RE_education, when images, words and reflections are overlapped with high velocity trains, humans’ noises, and an ambulance syren as a background. It means living an indoor emergency, incorporated uncertainty reflection, pulsating indefinite time enclosure.
