Cemetery. Journeys to the Elephant Graveyard and Beyond compiles a selection of the visual and research materials accumulated during the development of the film and project Cemetery (2009–2019).
This book presents the artist’s research process from early archival investigations to location photography, from drawings and diagrams to collages, from archive films to archive boards, shedding light on the early stages of the development of Cemetery.
Inspired by and based on the elephant graveyard myth, the film questions not only our idea of nature and the meaning of the myth but also the ability of cinema to move us, to affect us and to shape us. “It combines images with sound and vibrations to induce new corporeal modes of interspecies relationship.” The film “creates a complex sensorial experience that collapses the boundaries between art, nature documentary and adventure film.”
