2021 | 8'15" | english title: Thrist
Thirst is a research into desire and the suffering it causes. About a love-hate relationship with the physical body and lost innocence.
The video is inspired by Taṇhā, a Buddhist concept which literally translates to thirst. It stands for desire, longing and craving.
Craving of sensual pleasures, craving for existence and craving for non-existence. Taṇhā is seen as the cause of all suffering.
The video shows a series of close-up shots of glossy organic shapes, alternated with vague storylines of bodybuilders and skeletons on a quest for happiness.
Part of a video-installation with the same name.
