Part of Geena Matuson's installation series 'Liar Liar', this short shows plastic flowers burning, the plastic melting off the wax stems - all atop a broken chair made in Yugoslavia. The fire appears to burn in reverse, expressing the idea that everything repeats, reverts - nothing truly changes.
Matuson created the music for this non-looping version of 'Made In Yugoslavia,' a remix of Bach's Air on G-String, a violin solo. The original, looping version of this piece was created for gallery display.
"I initially created this project for gallery show 'TransFIREmation,' which I produced and curated at Massachusetts College of Art & Design in April, 2013. The gallery show turned into a group show with selected artists. See documentation of the gallery show and reception."
