Something must happen

Video Artist: Julia Zastava
Country: Year: Duration: 6 min 0 sec


“Something must happen” exposes a dream-like reality and shows a life based on a mode of consciousness that could be considered as entranced. In a series of different sceneries, Julia Zastava performs actions in an enchanted way. Against the background of ubiquitous self-representation through pictures, videos and posts performing highlights and apparently “great” moments of life, this video points out the mere basic structures of human existence, evoking sublime suspense.
