13 Characters in Search of a Story
13 Characters in Search of a Story examines the ritual of a film festival. Here, the festival is deconstructed, and its functions are distributed among small structures. Thirteen constructions, inspired by tropes of horror and fantastic cinema, are erected, each portraying a different archetype character. These elements, with various personalities and images, serve as clues for a story that visitors should explore and arrange according to their imagination. The goal is to contemplate the universal value of such tropes and express their meaning beyond the confined boundaries of a one-and-a-half-hour movie.
