In a hinterland within the ‘elsewhere’, a lone character meanders in search of meaning and understanding. Hither and dither doth he wander reflecting upon all things that came before and all things hereafter. The work is a companion piece to Kötting’s latest feature film LEK AND THE DOGS and was shot in the Atacama desert in Chile. Produced to run on a loop in a gallery ‘space’ or as a single screen the film exemplifies Köttings ability to take an idea and run with it until it spills over into the expanded cinematic ‘elsewhere’. With the beguiling presence of French performance artist Xavier Tchili and sublime cinematography by Nick Gordon-Smith the work is designed to be experienced within the pitch black and the sound up high.
