Maja Bajević “Bergman, Bond, Bajević”

Entrance to the Open cinema air (Metalac) (Sarajevo)
August 22 – September 20, 1998


The work is composed of three parts – two sound recordings (one female, one male voice) and a film recorded and projected in Super 8. The female voice, which speaks in Dutch, taken from a telephone answering machine, has the character of a kind of confession and self-examination (man-woman). Opposed to this is the male voice that repeats, “My name is Bond, Jeremy Bond”. It seems that this has to do with some kind of lovers’ quarrel or break-up. A black-and-white film is projected on wash hanging out to dry. Through one film, we enter into another; in that way the entrance to the cinema becomes a “film” in itself.
