Veronika Fabian - You, me and your stuff
In addition to the pieces, the project expands across mediums, comprising short stories and several musical singles produced in a collaborative project – experimenting with an interdisciplinary approach for intricate biography of the works. The poems serve as portraits to introduce each of the works in more depth. They were written by Kristof Hajos and are mostly fictional but have their foundation in my research.
Other collaborators are: Ambrus Tovishazi (music), Akos Mesterhazy (video editing), Martijn van Ooststroom, Jo Bloxham, J. P. Cardeira and Marilyn Volkman as narrators. The roles they are impersonating are the: the retired motorcyclist, who gives his beloved leather jacket as a present to her granddaughter’s 18th birthday, passing on an important signifier of his identity; the middle-aged woman thinking back on her life; the tipsy chain maker; the diet obsessed girl; the narrator of the boy’s story who spends his first allowance on buying an ABBA vinyl record.
