More Info Works / Q


The artist’s firstborn son transformed, in the blink of an eye, into a young man. Q is a conceptual film about forces that change the world. Q takes us to the end of the worlds, the depths of the ocean and to the ruins of Atlantis. Q’s destruction is the road to new growth — it is the only promise of continuity and the emergence of new nations. Q is shot on 16 mm film whose surface has been hand-coloured. But what or who is Q?
