CORRIDORWORLD, 2019




CORRIDORWORLD
2019
Digital video and sound
Duration: 2 minutes 20 seconds

Corridorworld (2019) intercepts nightmarish childhood memories by using fragments of corridor scenes from Kubrick’s The Shining. The artist deconstructs the original film script in order to build a scenario where the characters appear trapped, looped in a state of mutual pursuit without resolution. The original audio is replaced by repetitive sound effects that emphasize the lack of any beginning. All of a sudden, the viewer is seized with the instinct to direct the child out of the virtual maze, or manipulate the joystick until arriving at ‘game over’.
