Scherbekova’s Cotton Wand now online

“This video is a fruit of my ongoing inquiry into the feelings of home. Long before filming commenced, I nourished my interest in the theme, picking up and holding people’s personal stories. I received one story on the 22nd of February from someone whose home was turned upside down in the following few days.

Half a year later I listened again and understood that despite never referencing the calamitous political events that ensued, the story was always responding to the history and connecting it to the present. This story narrates and underlies the video.”
