THE LITTLE BOAT | ZIAD ANTAR

© Copyright, 2020, Onassis foundation

The Onassis Foundation (onassis Stegi ans Onassis USA) "gave artists from around the world 120 hours to create from home a series of new original comissions; sharing their new reality."

Ziad Antar took "one of the world's most popular childre's songs as a sample, this video slowly reaveals the latent violence embedded in the culture addressed to kids. This is a single video take, similar to a photograph, in which a tiny instrument is left to self-unwind with so much tenderness while the song's story of almost carnivorous nature is told."
