In Case of an Emergency

Video Still, In case of Emergency, Atelier Mondial Basel, 2015

In Case of an Emergency was a project funded by Pro- Helvetia, Basel, Switzerland in 2017. Here I have used a fire exit within a building as a metaphor to approach the passage of global and dangerous migrations that describe the plight of humans involved in conflict zones, or a result of rising climate change.  The work depicts lives which are forced into attempting a journey across an unknown passage.

This eight minute video was filmed in Basel and presented during the open studio event at Atelier Mondial. Basel 2015
The project was realised during the Pro- Helvetia International Artist residency 2015 at Basel
