SYNOPSIS

Landscapes, things, men, women and children taken by an "evil eye" more than a century ago haunt the present in this jagged reverie. A persona voicelessly narrates, via captions, going through colonial photographs, digresses to eating fruit and entering a cave on a tropical vacation island.

 

PROGRAM NOTE

Dominion draws images from a collection of photographs depicting the landscapes of colonial-era Philippines over a century ago. It is somewhat hesitant to call these images objective records, as they reflect the ruler's gaze of the colony. Nude individuals and nature as subjects of conquest linger aimlessly within modern editing tools. The director overlays these images with contemporary visuals, sounds, and texts, contemplating the capacity and role of images. [Programmer SON Sinae]

Director

  • Bea MARIANO

    Bea Mariano experiments with words, images and video. Her works mostly deal with histories, colonization and decoloniality through automatic and expressionistic approaches to art-making. A fellow of the Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum’s Leaky Archive project in 2022, she also codes and translates.
