Losing control is marvellous. Afterwards you will regret things perhaps, but on the moment itself it is a relief. Anger, vandalism, pointless violence, disappointment, sorrow, ruthless abusing… all are stages in a psychological process, an inner transformation. And what about inspiration, the urge to create, the transcendental plane? Are these the very opposites of destruction or do they follow naturally from each other?
Film and video are perfectly suited to record this process. The transformation is depicted by framing shrewdly, by stripping away all narrative or by consciously omitting the immediate cause of an act. Sometimes in documentary fashion, sometimes staged (ipv directed), sometimes symbolically. In beauty, the human psyche is disected (ipv analysed).
The program COLLAPSE draws attention to this transformation. Something new is created from destruction. The piano is a recurring theme. An artist invites a vulture to his studio. An opera is being written. A landscape disappoints. And Christmas trees infuriate.
