  • The Protagonists

  • Artist: Gabi Dao
  • Year: 2018
  • Duration: 8:09
  • Country: Canada
  • Playfully collapsing the space between Hollywood Cinema and what Dao refers to as Domestic Cinema, The Protagonists explores the relationships between representation and reality. Motifs of a clumsy animatronic hand, colorful smokebombs, a backyard garden, and a metronome become characters —protagonists, so to speak— in the deconstruction of filmic colonization.
