In the video “Sitzende”, filmed in Portugal, Jardim da Estrela, Lisbon, a figure of a woman dressed in black is shown in three fixed positions feeding pigeons and ducks with bread crumbs.
The static camera work reflects the absence of movement (the woman almost doesn’t move, the birds are particularly silent). The video was projected on four different wooden plates, creating an intentional fracture in the image.
