The Un Dead
Rasmus Ramö Streith

The Un dead is set in a haunted house where people and furniture have come to resemble each other. In a sequence of events that is at once surrealistically driven and materially presenting, we get to see what takes place between these four walls. A woman chews on a bird, a belt floats in the room, a man stares out of an opaque window opening. It’s a desolate interior where amateur actors perform protracted acts on repeat. The video was recorded on VHS with a camera from 1985. These technical limitations create a time-bound filter, a low resolution with painterly effect. The sound is close, clear and sharp, achieving a warping effect between image, sound and object. In the cracks between the familiar and the strange, between normality and absurdity, there is a growing gnawing discomfort.
