Round

Näsänen Elena

In the two-channel video installation ‘Round’ the same role is played on each screen, on one side an actor, on the other an actress. They enter a bar dressed smartly, business-like, and sit there for a while. Later they drunkenly roam the streets, stumbling around. They end up in a bar somewhere where the time seems to stand still, only a ray of light moves slowly across the floor.
