Video / Reading
Double Happiness is an essayistic road-movie, made in 2014/2015. The video combines recordings & notes from my two-months journey through Indonesia with conceptional studio recordings made back home in Basel. It’s a reflection upon east / west, gaps, labyrinths, evocative materials, value systems and point of views.
The movie contains as well two contemporary adaption of traditional rice songs, that Indonesian workers are still singing on the field. It’s a playful inversion of the trend among Indonesian teenagers to sing and play their interpretations of western folk/pop-songs in the streets.
