Marko Tadić, The room (2009); The moons, 2011
The Room is a film created by Marko Tadić using stop motion animation technique, but it was abandoned by the artist during the editing phase. The video represents a seance, or rather what happens in the room after everyone has left. The animation reveals furniture and objects moving, candles burning down, light effects and flashes similar to explosions, and the appearance of figures - toys and knick-knacks. In the closing scene, a small pottery cat looks into the fixed camera and in the background we can see the almost destroyed room.
The Moons is a video that should have been part of a larger, realised project We used to call it: Moon. It consists of five short films which are almost drafts. The same scene is shot from the same standpoint, but with different lights and background music. In this scene, a strange landscape is composed of small sculptures that look like monuments. Two wooden spheres move and change position, representing the two moons of the title.
