The Cherry Orchard

2011
In “The cherry orchard” my family is performing an Eastern European ritual of sitting together before departure. My father whistles a waltz by Aram Khachaturian. The family is sitting on plastic chairs by a window, arranged as a string quartet, wearing identical clothes (white buttoned up shirts, black bottoms).

In “The cherry orchard” my family is performing an Eastern European ritual of sitting together before departure. My father whistles a waltz by Aram Khachaturian. The family is sitting on plastic chairs by a window, arranged as a string quartet, wearing identical clothes (white buttoned up shirts, black bottoms). The scene was filmed from a point of view of a door, and projected on a heavy large object that is made of a doorframe, wood and drywall. The object looks as a blocked entrance with a missing door, which was taken from a domestic architecture and is leaning ion the gallery wall.
The second channel shows different part of the room where the family was sitting. We can see the same window, only with a blooming cherry tree behind it, and the ceiling of the room with modern version of decadent chandeliers. Sound of singing birds comes from the window with the cherry tree. This channel is projected on drywall panel that is also leaning on the gallery wall.
If viewers stand in a certain spot in the middle between the 2 channels, the waltz and the bird singing collide into one.
