What the trailer here

The exhibition le café de la marine would have taken place at Kulturfolger in Zurich in February 2021. Restrictions imposed by the global pandemic turned the project into a spectral exploration, in which the works of the participating artists are activated through film. What forms do spectres emerging from the past take in our industrialised present? What are the ghosts of our material trajectories, the haunted signs at the heart of our globalised metropolis? The filmic work engages in a dialogue with the artists’ works to create a narrative reflecting on our present social fragmentation, technological anchorage and evanescent circulation. Ghost ship, the movie, will be released in the Spring. The Ghost Ship crew is Amélie Bargetzi, Damian Christinger, Gregory Collavini, Anne-Laure Franchette, Dorota Lukianska, Cora Piantoni. Technical crew is Amélie Bargetzi, Philippe Desarzens, Anne-Laure Franchette, Cora Piantoni. Navigation by Gabriel Gee.

Ghost ship is a month long spectral project by Teti group at @kulturfolger, Zurich, which explores global uncertainties through maritime lenses and spatial displacement.

Thank you to Kulturfolger for hosting the Ghost ship, which is supported by the Guggenheim Stiftung.
