A conversation that never took place
SONIA DE JAGER & ALEXANDRA MASON
In this video, edited by Ioana Tomici, two friends smoke weed, drink whiskey and read a prepared script, while also conversing freely and merging fact with fiction, agreement with disagreement and news with fake news. The authors engage in a vloggy style, on and off, flirting with ideas that are not necessarily their own. This results in some cognitive confusion, mock(echo)ing the world of YouTube vloggers and the spread of misinformation.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A between Sonia de Jager and Alexandra Mason in which the audience will be given the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the conversation.
Sonia de Jager is an incoherent being.
Ioana Tomici is a researcher and visual artist, working and thinking through post-humanist themes and inquiries. Her work often results in the building of fictional narratives through mediums such as video and text. Tomici's contribution has been the generation of a conversation that never took place.
