Fiction exists in the space between two different places of perception. When a shadow of reality is created from two opposing positions, what character emerges from the unknown quarters - the blindspots, peaks and flares?
Rosa Barba and David Maljkovic have staged the creation of a fiction, by sending back and forth between their transitory locations in Stockholm and Zagreb respectively, a series of images and texts, moving and stationary, which occur independently of the other. They pick up from and respond to what has come before, what could be anticipated for the future, or what occurs in the moment of reception.
This ?script-writing? is as much about the process towards building a narrative or fiction, as it is about the formation of a plot. Without a beginning or end, the fiction is suspended between two authors, two protagonists, who form a fragile relationship which is freeze-framed through the series of images. Some of those images are their own, some are derived from their autonomous research, some are created together and some are simply taken ? or more precisely, handed-over. Project?s gallery is the host to the 16mm results of this process, installed in a built environment conceived by Barba and Maljkovic.
