6 Channel projected installation with 8 channel sound; 53min 43sec. [Marian Goodman Gallery, 2010]

Where is Where? by Eija-Liisa Ahtila is "a haunting and layered consideration of how history affects our perception of reality" [MoMA, 2010], with the story of a poet seeking to understand and to interpret an event of two Arab boys killing their French friend during the Algerian war. The images are projected by "highly original use of multiframe images", displaying "the expressive power of cinema." [MoMA, 2010]
