Birdsong, 16:45 min, Color, Stereo, Belgium, 2023

Two birds in a weightless world. They summon the sun with a song until an eclipse brings out the stars. Birdsong is an attempt to see the beginning in the end, a meditation on a world without us, a postlapsarian paradise, a kind of love at last sight.

Anouk De Clercq explores the potential of audiovisual language to create possible worlds. Her recent work is based on the utopian idea of ‘radical empathy’.
