Silver Patrol, 2014, 4.25 min., sound, color, HD video.
in collaboration with Ioannis Savvidis

 

Silver Patrol is a video work which appropriates the aesthetics of war-zone television reportage. A UN Soldier is filmed on his New Year’s Eve patrol ride through the streets of Berlin. The impressive amount of celebratory ordinance deployed throughout the city calls into question the distinction between civic space and battle zone; history and spectacle.
