with 'Solastalgia' with Frederik Croene
Pianist Frederik Croene uses the neologism 'Solastalgia' to refer to the mixture of emotions that climate change awakens in him: a feeling of mourning for the disappearing landscape, and fear of the looming ecological disaster as a result. This complex feeling is expressed in four compositions. Each is paired with a static video by artist Karl Van Welden, portraying four ships that had to deal with quarantine. Together, image and sound form a haunting metaphor for the current state of humanity.
