Land X, 2022
This video was filmed in February 2022 from one of the rooms at Oriental Hotel in the city center of Hargeisa, interfering in a way in between the two opposing positions to a place that it is being referred to as fictional and real at the same time. -Position One: I was never here and therefore I never filmed this video, these images don't exist because this place doesn't, the hotel, the buildings around, the people and that military entity. The filming took place entirely somewhere else. -Position Two: I certainly was here and therefore I certainly filmed this video, these images do exist because this place does, the hotel, the buildings around, the people and that military entity. The filming took place entirely in Somaliland. Both of this positions emphasize two points of actions, one being exterior and the other interior.
