Kamara, 2015

A thick layer of clay is shaped with a human body: a man hits the clay with knees, elbows, shoulders and back. The clay is being molded into a landscape with mountains and valleys. Tiny details become visible, the pattern of the skin and body hair are printed in the clay. Video is shot in tight frame, the man or the size of the clay are is not fully visible in any point. The sound is thuds and hits on the clay and occasional instructions to the performer from a female voice.
Length: 3:57
