Ink in Milk

DE 2018

The video shot on Super 8 mm film by the Austrian artist Gernot Wieland resurrects the unsettling world of a child: the painful experience of boundaries where the right to autonomous development crashes head on with institutional violence. First exclusion then confinement. The perfidious architectures of disciplinary measures permeate the bodies and are internalized to such an extent that the discipline works of itself. The narrative of Ink in Milk becomes a poetic, almost tragicomic circumstantial trial against authoritarian structures, whereby fascinatingly awkward line drawings, clay figures and sculptures made from charred wood serve as a demonstration of evidence that does not yield any kind of standard truth.

Gernot Wieland, DE 2018, 11'30''
