Anonymous Objects

Kay Walkowiak, 2018, 30 min

In the short film „Anonymous Objects“, five iconic modernist art objects tell the stories of their existence „living“ in different places in the densely populated metropolis Hong Kong. As objects of a pre-colonial past, their present-day post-colonial identity crisis is expressed: they exist in a vacuum at the edge of schizophrenia, timeless, without location and without redeeming end. „Anonymous Objects“ is a work on the question of the narrative comprehensibility of form and its function as a projection surface for timeless utopias in the global context, based on the different cultural-historical attitudes of the „East“ and „West“ in today´s post-colonial Hong Kong.
