"Self-Portrait as a Falling Tree", performance for video in progress, 2023

A performance for video made in front of my grandparent's walnut and the remains of the willow branches taken down by a fast storm on the 14th of July of 2023. It is also made in response to the massive tree cutting action undertaken by Ilfov county council to pave the way for the enlargement of the county road. According to my calculations over 3000 thousand trees have been cut so far. The film can also be seen as an `hommage` to Bas Jan Ader.
