Sasha Litvintseva’s practice investigates the possibilities of temporality using the moving image.
Evergreen is the story of an immortal traveler’s journey through failed and aspirational utopias. The viewer witnesses society’s strife for perfection, and its unquenchable thirst to document itself; as if driven by a sense of its looming demise.
The audience watches on as heritage turns into spectacle and spectacle turns into heritage.
