B3 Leading Exhibition: Welcome Aleksandar Radan

The Offenbach artist and student of the University of Design Aleksandar Radan presents his short film "Der Waldkauz" as part of the B3 main exhibition. In this first episode of the series "Characteristics of Nature" Radan produces a kind of educational video, which explains to us the tawny owl and its habitat, but also the cultural significance of the bird as a "bird of death". Although stylistically close to conventional nature films, the video tilts into a seemingly surreal sequence in which the focus on the studied species is repeatedly distracted by elements that are clearly not part of the image. The continuously digitally produced video is on the one hand "documentary" constructed - in its artistic structure, however, strangely idiosyncratic. It moves closer to the unpredictable dynamics of nature than it may seem superficially.
