kültüř gemma! is on!

screening of the video work Mâna care taie done in the frame of kültüř gemma! scholarship 2021

Somewhere between the Danube and the airport, in the Austrian suburbs, a micro history starts to unfold on a king size bed. Two tired women, mother and daughter, eat together after work. Monotonously picturesque, manipulated landscapes, interrupt the underlying silent drama of the seasonal worker’s daily life. Paid for one body part to perform the repetitive action of cutting, the only concern being the grapes, the relations between workers suffer under this transactional regime as well. The daughter becomes authoritarian as she has to introduce the mother to the new realities of her temporary living situation. Buying an egg is a complex problem. The blurred memory of a mini revolt resurfaces.
