Three Farewells: The Last Burial
Fiction expérimentale, Film-trilogy, Part 3 | 4k | couleur | 24'0'' | Grèce / Pays-Bas | 2013
SYNOPSIS Three Farewells: The Last Burial Janis Rafa The Last Burial proposes a visual approach on the concept of death and the fear of losing, outside the rigid anthropocentric understanding on human / non-human existence. It describes the moment of loss within the intimate space of a family house. The father and mother of this familial environment are silenced, in a state of mourning. Their sorrow is expressed through the form of water, rain or onions; visual symbolisms that take the characters into a timeless state of being and awareness, reflecting on the house’s past. The Last Burial consists part of the Three Farewells (2013), a trilogy of burials produced by Janis Rafa, with the support of Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst Alexander S. Onassis Foundation Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten.
