Ansuya blom
Hither come down on me
Experimental film, Video installation | 16mm | black and white | 11'15'' | Netherlands | 2007
Being the third and last section in the series "Cowboys and Indians", "Hither Come down on me" deals with the disquiet at the heart of the town.There is a voice which speaks directly to the protagonist, giving him orders. Contrary to the first two sections "Chapter Three" and "Nervous", it is here that the language is moving and provides a particular auditory experience. Our perception is distorted by the spatial experience.
