SYNOPSIS

In the performance The House of Cards, Dr Xenia does not travel north or west by train, but in a south-easterly direction. On the route that led to Kumrovec in the previous country, but ends at the last station in front of the Croatian border in the new country, it tries to make a house out of cards. The impossible task is reminiscent of the inability to create safe life and home, which constantly elude refugees and migrants, as well as precarious workers of all ages, including cultural workers. At the end of the road, Dr Xenia faces harsh reality that prevents free movement, the horrifying symptom of which is barbed wire. (Source: excerpt of the curatorial text by Vesna Bukovec, Ana Grobler and Sebastian Krawczyk for the exhibition Dr Xenia: The Fourth Corner – Rights for Our Fights)


Video was premiered at the 27th International Festival of Contemporary Arts – City of Women on the exhibition Dr Xenia: The Fourth Corner – Rights for Our Fights at Alkatraz Gallery in Ljubljana.
