Poposki - The City Alone (2020 glitch ed

Zoran Poposki, The City Alone (2020 glitch edit), 2020, digital video, DVD, stereo, 4:37 minutes.

Poposki's The City Alone is a radical glitch edit of Hong Kong director Wong Karwai's famous film "Chunking Express" (1994), in which all scenes featuring people have been cut out. Operating within the frame of post-human aesthetics, in scenes eerily reminiscent of the  emptiness of urban landscapes during the lockdowns due to the global pandemic, the video raises questions about spatial ontology and post-human agency in the Anthropocene.
