PLANTS ON HOLIDAY (2015 - 2018)
Nature is often staged as a pre-linguistic, anti-human force. But as with all representations, the idea of ‘nature’ is constantly failing to engulf all human fantasies and nightmares that are aiming to it, ending up eternally reframing them within the domain of ideology. In this video, FYTA become plants dressing up as people staging a theater play about plants. The mirroring of embodiment, fantasy and representation creates a series of surreal interactions where sexuality meets relaxation, impossible relationships find theatrical resolutions and an excursion to a deserted resort turns into post-human documentary on nature.
The film premiered at the Berlin Porn Film Festival in the programme “The real Athens queer DIY” curated by Alex Tsoli.
