Adla Isanović & Larisa Hasanbegović “Seesaw”
Academy of Fine Arts (Sarajevo)
August 22 – September 20, 1998
The work “seesaw” is an experiment of the crossing movement of two different rhythms. The video installation consists of two monitors one beside the other, on which are simultaneously shown two video tracks of equal length. The tracks were recorded simultaneously in one take by two cameras, each one attached to an ankle of one person. The cameras record walking, going into town, arriving at seesaw in children’s park. The recording continues- as the cameras are removed from their legs and attached, facing away from each other, on the two sides of the seesaw- until the seesaw comes to rest.
