The Two-Headed Bull and Other Portuguese Fables

Curator: Marta Mestre | Session: Reload

Filmed on a portable, digital camera, and incorporating cinematic imperfections, such as a grainy appearance added in post-production, this video uses subtitles from the era of silent film to create an anthropomorphic game which reveals the ease with which we project human traces onto everything that surround us via language. The video reminds us of how the text and the image are constantly shaping our understanding of the world.
