Finally installation in Mirabell gardens in Salzburg

Finally (2006) installed in public park in Salzburg.

Finally (2006): 17 min, 35mm film and DVD, colour, 5.1 audio.
Was orignially produced as a work for public space as part of the exhibition Kontracom, in the Mozart 2006 celebrations. 
I shot the film on site and installed it in one of the sites of the film, the Mirabell gardens, as an installation that was acessible 24h a day. 

Finally, a 35mm film, is concerned with the question of history and violence, and researching the area between narrative film and the analysis of space within contemporary art. The film is shot within a historic setting in Salzburg, Austria.

Finally, explores the boundaries between narrative film and the discussion of place and history.The films emphasis is on an interplay between spatial and architectural placement and manner of language at use between the protagonists, rather than linear story. The three main characters in Finally fight violently and repeatedly in the film, but there is nothing in the way they hang out together or talk to each other that seems to trigger it. It seems rather to be the reaction to, or even demand of, a place in manners that are both historic and contemporary. Åsdam's objective of developing a new kind of cinema is approached by using the resources of spatial and place-oriented discourse from the Fine Arts context as a strategy within film.

Finally was produced by Kontracom and Mozart2006, Salzburg with support from The Norwegian Cultural Council. In the collection of FRAC Bourgogne.
