Kuratiert von Carmen Arias im Rahmen des Programms Fair Play



Two rats gather for a game of cards in an apparently empty room of a former ticket booth. Suddenly, the tranquillity of their encounter is  disrupted, causing the existing relational dynamics -both among themselves and with the room- to collapse for a moment. The recurring interruption in “3-Way-Handshake” points out an existing potential for change within any spatiotemporal scenario. It is in such a moment of temporary collapse that the parallel actions composing the narrative first seem to concur.
Through the window panes, we see different characters who inhabit the space in an almost parasitic and artificial way. Two adjectives that could just as well describe the ticket booth in its obsolete state; a building clinging to a park that was itself perhaps a parasite of a previous landscape.
Nassim L’Ghoul focuses on speculative observations and how they affect the relationship between subject and space. By visually capturing elements of the building and its surroundings, the audiovisual piece aims to portray an interim state and an alternative reading to the existence of the ticket booth. One may think of the joker in a deck of cards, who as a substitute for another card, enables the punctual versatility of an alternative function.
