Mos Stellarium Installation

Video installation, 4 x 6 minutes.
Mos Stellarium Installation is a video installation featuring parts of the homonymous documentary, split into 4 projections. The stories are shown simultaneously and connect different parts of the world, thus creating links between unknown destinies and ourselves.
Six young refugees talk about their escapes and trips, as well as the new problems they encounter in Luxembourg.
Mos Stellarium is a poetic documentary about Dzemil, Milena, Anna, Yunus, Rijad and Eko. In all intimacy, they tell their stories as young refugees. Attached to the traveled landscapes and all the encounters, the memories look back at these strange journey and turn to the future. It is, in a way, the human existence in a universal sense. Like mysterious maps of constellations, their voyages began in Afghanistan, Syria, Kosovo or Montenegro. They headed for Europe, Luxembourg in particular, and their destinies turn them into young adults by accident, but full of dignity nonetheless.
Mos Stellarium has been selected for Liechtenstein's first representation at the Venice Art Biennale 2015, a collateral event entitled The Silver Lining.
Mos Stellarium Installation is composed of extracts of the documentary Mos Stellarium. You can find more info on this work here.
