To exist is to be perceived. This installation questions the interaction between 'cinema' and the face. A black & white film sculpts a portrait of Chechen people in exile. Their representation is reduced to the essence: a series of silent faces. At the same time we hear testimonies of their slow genocide. The faces disappear and reappear, evoking a tension between vulnerability and resistance. In Chechen language, the concepts of 'people' and 'humanity' are both conveyed with the same word: 'admosh'. A communal space is created by the way in which the technique of image and sound is set up, with interaction between the filmic shadows and the shadows of the visitors.
