Be on guard

Projection 3:13 min, Sound

Animation, editing, effects: Alica Khaet
Sound: Joanna Schulte


The audiovisual installation “Be on your guard” was created in collaboration with sound artist Joanna Schulte during their joint residency at Kunstverein Röderhof e.V. in March-May 2022. Caused by the war in Ukraine, the animation work critically processes seemingly personal themes such as “violence in relationships”, “partnership”, “intimacy”, “physicality”, “individuality”, “birth”, “threatening and fear” with a pinch of painful irony.
