La Borde GRENSELØSE NAVN investigates a crisis of perception, through a series of symbolic images – the v-shaped formation of a flock of geese, a sunlit plateau in the southern France, a crashed car in a mental asylum. These images are connected by a collective travelogue, tracing back the trajectory of Antoine Artaud and Felix Guattari. In a symbolic language where the series of images emerge as poetic carriers of an alternating vision, a new free perception. From a rational scientific world-view in crisis to a renewed poetic vison, carried by a psychotic sensibility.
With Volve Vokal as the V-shaped procession of geese, a stranded car covered by dust from the experimental mental clinic La Borde (in France, where Guattari was director in the 60ties and 70ties) and an essayistic video, attempting to re-create a visionary poetic psychosis.
