Old Beetle

Alexander Vereshchak, Margarita Zinets

1998 | Kyiv | video installation

«Old Beetle» is a video installation on the basis of footage from original educational film by Bavaria Film studio in 1970. The artists looped a short cut from this film to express the shifts between persistent concentration on simple actions and boredom or the feeling of comfort in the context of which temporal limits of the work depend on the viewer’s tenacity for continuous actions that function in regime of the «present» and eliminates «past» and «future». «Old Beetle» creates an impression of live New Year retro postcard which obtains a threat of exhausting obsession beyond the holiday feelings.
