ABSENCE SHE SAID by Breda Beban and Hrvoje Horvatic deals with the moods and feelings associated with the experience of loss, absence, separation, and remembrance. It reveals the feelings of a young woman who is obviously coming to terms with a loss or a separation. The passing of time seems to decrease. The surroundings seem to dissolve. The video convinces and affects by the use of poignant pictures and haunting sound which reveal the flow of time and the feelings of absence.
For 30 years Videonale has continued to present the current, international video art. Works by artists with widely varying experiences and from diverse cultural contexts are brought together. And with the development of ever newer forms of presentation, Videonale is reinvented every two years. It surprises, informs, puts up for discussion and convinces through the quality of the individual contributions. In the long term it builds a comprehensive archive of all those works which are important for the independence and advancement of video and media art.
