Shot in black-and-white as a documentary with an atmosphere midway between science fiction and ethnography, Carcasse presents a possible future. It is a life far removed from cities, where humans and animals live in sync with the rhythms of rugged nature. Everything in the inhabitants’ lives refers to familiar technologies that have been reused in novel ways. Carcasse encourages you to surrender to the landscape and further invent it alongside its people.
Clémentine Roy and Gústav Geir Bollason have been making projects on entropy in relation to landscape since 2000. They started working on Carcasse – a project that consists of this film, an installation of objects from it created with local farmers, and a publication – in 2012.
