Airplane crash in the jungle

sound from the site-specific installation, a diorama set in the Museum of Aviation Belgrade, 2018

Audio to a diorama containing a scene of a plane slowly but certainly plunging into the jungle’s lush canopies. The work is about escapism, failed expectations, anxiety. It’s about the feeling that something very bad and fatal will happen suddenly, when least expected. It also evokes the human state of inability to recognize their true desires, to tell right from wrong. 

It is the ultimate memento mori set in the jungle, most potent tropical vanitas.
