Fate is the video creation proposed by Marina Badía and Marta PCampos for the ‘Lars (von Trier) Six Challenges’ within the Gesamt Project call promoted by the Danish director.
The main restriction was that the sequences presented had to be related to six works of art proposed by the director belonging to different fields.
Fate was conceived as a dreamlike composition based on the works of Cesar Franck and Paul Gauguin.
Their light and sound were our main sources of inspiration, although the title of Gauguin’s painting was fundamental: Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?
The selected Gesamt Project video creations were presented at the Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen in a room with four screens that did not show any video simultaneously.
No photography or filming was allowed in the room.
