Stage Land
by Tim Mark Didymus & Emilia Telese

The cross is Europe's historical symbol, two lines or stories which at the point of meeting can be thought of as cutting or layering one another.

Stage Land brings together audio-visual media from eleven different countries in an attempt to find chiastic forms in time and place. For example, you can hear recordings of French economist Jacques Attali talking in London as the English composer listens to the cityscapes of Paris.

Like film frames, history is viewed through many angles, each acquiring a new significance. "You have to forget something for its recollection to take place, the image is the 'thing' that is in a state of disappearing".*
