 Black Sheep Escape

White and black, opaque and transparent, the internal frame and an obscure external space converse on a journey to the final exit, an escape which is feasible only by the opposite and the different, by collision and friction. The video focuses on what we cannot comprehend, on what is different, on what belongs to a group other than ours. In a region like the Balkans, where multiculturalism is a reality, the idea of being different in all its manifestations – culture, religion, sexual preference or gender – is a fact that cannot be skimmed over, perhaps because these different elements led to constant disputes and conflicts in the region. Therefore, black, which is unlike every other color, takes the form of all the features that are unknown to us, vitiates our own stereotypes as to the meaning of boundary, since its own boundaries lie in a different semantic space.
