The Other Shore
The Other Shore” is a video-installation by Mats Hjelm which is a poetic reflection about the Atlantic as a space of transit between its different shores that link histories of diaspora, colonization, and the mystery of liberation by navigating to “another” place, as well as the horrors of captivity awaiting those who are shipped back, against their will, to their homeland. Hjelm’s multimedia syntax – produced by the edited correlation of images, texts, music, and song where media often is separated in purist, autonomous notions of language inherited from modernism. It comes together in a hybridized whole, like a poetic equivalent of our polarized daily lives.
