Kika Nicolela

2010, 10:44 minutes, B&W, German with English subtitles


During an art residency in Graz, Austria, the artist invites local actors to read scenes of her feature film script. These auditions are the base of THE FILM THAT IS NOT THERE #1. This video is the first of a series of videos Kika Nicolela will make in various cities around the world, based on the script of a feature film she wrote, but never intends to shoot. This project approaches the ambiguity of acting and explores the multiple layers and possibilities of a script.
