..an exile...

..an exile... is a video Carola Dertnig produced in Tbilisi (Georgia) that includes a text from “Shadow Cities” by Andre Aciman.The thread that comes loose from a dress is an allusion to numerous other works by Dertnig, while also marking a “home.” And laying a trail. Suggesting perhaps a feminist reinterpretation of a myth, it is this very thread running through the video that often distorts the commonly accepted, never challenged path of a strongly patriarchal majority society. At the same time, it unravels a whole space of experience that reveals the immense power of the “other” to find, redefine, new and be forced to choose her own System for it.
