POSH
FlucT

Sigrid Lauren and Monica Mirabile of FlucT go somewhere they don’t want to go. “Posh” is a psychological thriller inspired by the internalized micro aggressions forced by the commodified necessity present in late- capitalism. In this portrayal of two women going to the mall, somatic affects on the duet dramatize the subliminal surfacing. Their camera is the psyche and the ghost as the performance duo walk through the shopping mall of Park Center Treptow—a commercial complex, in which its disused toy store acts as the temporary headquarters for this year’s 3hd festival.

THE LYNCHING SONG
M. Lamar

“The Lynching Song” has become central to M. Lamar’s practice. Inspired by the work of black liberation theologist James H. Cone’s bringing together the Christian cross with the lynching tree as a modern form of crucifixion, Lamar endeavors to engage a scared practice of remembrance, praise and sacrifice. Like the ritual singing of hymns, the artist’s hope through the continued performance of these songs is for the deepest spiritual and moral transformation. 

“I have always seen these lynching songs I write as a continuation of the African American Spiritual. These songs are surely how we have maintained the profound connection to our own humanity, as well as to those who have enslaved and oppressed us,” Lamar calls this Berlin Session iteration of the pieces. “There is never, in these songs, a thirst for vengeance or even anger. There is only love and a longing to be free, even if freedom means death.”

鏡中闇夜 MIRROR/ERROR
Yikii

Shot, directed and edited by Yikii, “鏡中闇夜mirror/error” concerns the connection between personal loneliness and society via visual accompaniment to six of her own tracks. The film title directly translates to “dark night of the mirror” in Chinese, where the artist abandons the notion of solitude as relational, instead exploring an alienation completely detached from other people. In doing so, “鏡中闇夜mirror/error” is a vision of an ‘apocalyptic loneliness’ completely absent of another human being. 

The video is replete with metaphors and fast-switching shots, while the dissonant music of tracks like “Don't Forget the Butterfly” and “Poisonous Air 空气毒性” present a flashback of destructive and desolate images, while alluding to the reflective “gaze of others” avoided. At the same time, Yikii emphasizes that such aloneness is not a negative adjective. Clear withdrawal has its own naturally calming power, while still carrying with it a fear of the unknown. Both the sun and moon shine on earth at the same time, after all. In the summer, the sunlight pours gently in the garden where flowers are in full bloom, but the mirror reflects the sticky darkness of the night.
