And All Will Be Repeated

Daniel Blaufuks

This video and photography work references and pays homage to the final scene of the film “Nostalgia” by the Russian Director Andrej Tarkovsky, in which the protagonist tries to save the world by crossing the empty tank of the Bagni Vignoni spa in Italy and, when he finally succeeds, collapses and dies. Among the sounds of the Terra Nostra park on the island of São Miguel, we listen to phrases from a poem by Arseny Tarkovsky, the Director´s father, in its original language because, as the film´s protagonist says, poetry cannot be understood through translation. This expanded photograph was filmed not long after the pandemic in a renewed attempt to save the world, and we will never know its concrete effect on what came after throughout the world.
