Rituals of Alternate Times

Sin votos (todavía)

Everyday life. Actions performed in passing, words uttered automatically, to which we do not attach importance. Performed and uttered constantly, over and over again... so many everyday rituals escape us— repeated countless times, known by heart, they no longer surprise, they become invisible.

These seemingly familiar and transparent moments of everyday life are examined in selected films. The artists have approached them in various ways—with humor, as in the works by Irena Nawrot, or more surrealistic, as in the one by Maya Deren. Activities exposed in this way cease to be so commonplace. It is worthwhile to take a closer look at them since they have been the main factors creating our everyday life, and consequently—our life!
