The post-apocalyptic landscapes gouged out of the ground by lignite mining have burned themselves into collective memory in recent months. In the film installation ›VOID‹, which was created in the Welzow-Süd open-cast lignite mine in Niederlausitz, Senem Gökçe Oğultekin and Levent Duran let the landscape itself become the protagonist of an experiment in perception. 17 people spend ten days there. In silence, they listen to this extraordinary place and search for an immediate connection. In front of the camera, they express this through their voices, their physical presence in an environment that has essentially long been alienated from the body and is beyond human scale. The camera does not intervene with their actions but simply allows time and space for existence.

In the film installation ›VOID‹, which can be seen as a special preview at PACT, the landscape is at work. We listen to it and let it take its effect. In search of way of accessing the wider world, ›VOID‹ focuses on the interaction of voice and body with matter and environment. Humans and nature are inextricably linked and their mutual dependence palpable.
