Mountain Elegy

Deniz Eroglu DK, TR, 2012, 14', HD video

In a landscape of barren snowy mountains a cave man (played by the artist’s brother) roams around in what appears to be pre-historic time. His primordial world is one of danger and one in which man lives solitary. A homeless man (played by the artist’s brother) falls victim to persecution as he is chased out of his village. A small film crew (the artist, his father, his brother and a cinematographer) sets camp in a small house on the side of a mountain. We follow the group as they set out to make a film, moving up the mountain through inhospitable winter landscapes. This work is structured as an anachronic narration consisting of three “storylines”. It is a melancholic meditation on estrangement, non-place, communion and family ties. (Deniz Eroglu)
