Version History is a new moving-image commission by Metahaven (Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden), and forms part of their investigation into overlapping geopolitical, technological, and emotional conditions.
In recent years Metahaven have moved on from installations and publications to garments and music videos, and now they are working predominantly with film, exploring everything from documentaries and fiction, to essay films and poetry.
Version History consists of three works: Hometown, Information Skies, and the newly commissioned Eurasia (Questions on Happiness) that uses cinematic sequences shot in the Southeastern Urals and Macedonia.
All three pieces share the same aesthetic language, combining cinematic imagery with graphics, animated layers and immersive soundscapes. All three are presented inside distinctive installations that include a hand-tufted carpet and a series of murals that are threaded throughout the gallery.
