“Do we taste like Sugar?”
Film history has a widespread array of various genres and sub-genres to reflect on the ever changing processes of human society and of course also on the relationship mankind has to the environment.
There is a sub-genre of horror films devoted to the subject of “natural horror films” or “zoological horror films” where animals are the threatening protagonists.
In the 50s with the experience of the atomic bombs at the end of WW2 and the era of ongoing nuclear bomb tests people’s imagination was drawn to the mutation of creatures.
Like in “Them!” (1954) or “Tarantula” (1955) giant ants or a spider attack human beings.
In the 70s the notion of “nature taking revenge” for the destruction done by mankind was more and more evolving as a mirror of a worldwide growing eco-critical movement.
I am very interested in those imaginations, the animal attacks on mankind seen as a kind of oracle.
I would like to make a short Noise performance for the exhibition of Dirk Holzberg, which will have its opening on 26th April 2016- 30 years after the Chernobyl catastrophe.The piece is also dedicated to the musical theme of “The Exorcist” (1973), composed by Lalo Schifrin which was finally rejected by the director William Friedkin to be used in the film.
