Inside depicts a human story within a dystopia of utilitarian uniformity, questioning the paradox of urban habitats – being together and yet alone. Examining the friction between volume and silence, internal and external, Inside speculates on how human behaviour and relationships have the capacity to adapt to new forms of life.
A short fashion film by Ouroboros commissioned by cap7074 for Posther, in co-production with Fashion Channel & Iso Produzioni Milan. Soundtrack by Objekt.

Papista is set inside the scene of Florentina Holzinger’s theatre piece Apollon, embodying a contemporary Venus, emerging from a classical backdrop of clouds into the symbolic world of the surrealists.
Papista and Holzinger share polemic messages unifying this collaboration: emancipation of the female from patriarchal oppression, rejection of feminine stereotypes and objectified form as subject purely for the male gaze – as well as a celebration of self-pleasure, pain and sisterhood.

In the act of surrendering everything in order to regain control, empowerment manifests through vulnerability. Zanias is both the master and slave of the elements.
