Carlos Casas’ Cemetery begins as the endangered elephant Nga and his mahout Sanra prepare for their last journey, soon to be tracked by poachers possessed by fables about a mythical elephant graveyard. As the poachers die mysteriously, one after another, the adventure film unfolds into a spacious cinematic experiment, carrying viewers to the ancient animal’s demise and far beyond. With the film’s allegorical passage through the stages of death, the indexical image is gradually subsumed by a rich sonic journey.
Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
