Video credits:
Duration: 2:16
Gorna Bela Rechka, Bulgaria, 2012
Camera: Michaela Lakova, Rayna Teneva & Qavor Milanov
Soundtrack: 'Seduisant Lollipop' by Sindri & Otto Von Schirach
Editing: Kristian Budev
Color-corrections: Yoana Buzova

This short teaser / promo was composed more as a visionary play instead of a factual documentation. It illustrates Goat Milk festival (2012), the participants and the people from the village of Gorna Bela Rechka, Northen Bulgaria. It reveals the diversity of that region: facets of faces, places, atmosphere, cultural events, organic food and live music. There is a special focus on the festival's theme that year - The Abandoned Northwest and the way how we saw it through our cameras' lenses.

»JODI@STDLIJK THE TITLES


Video credits:
Duration: 1:16"
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 2015
Performance: JODI
Camera & Edit: Michaela Lakova
Sound: JODI sound recording

This short video sequence entitled JODI@STDLJK The Opening Titles consists of 1475 composed images. The mesh assembles text strings, sound extract, together with images taken during the actual performance, screen shots provided by the artists themselves and images found on Internet.
Eventually everything is (re)mixed, shuffled around in immersive audio-visual glimpse of what might be my subjective interpretation on the performance instead of what an opening titles are usually used for as a precursor of the actual performance.
--------------

• The video documentation is part of "This folder contains" - a project initiated by Annet Dekker in association with LIMA, an Amsterdam-based platform for preserving, distributing and researching media art. This was made possible with the support of the Stedelijk museum.

Dubai & Abu Dhabi, UAE, 2017

Direction, Camera & Edit: Michaela Lakova
Voiceover: Patricia Chaves
Text Extracts: Erasure, Audrey Samson
Sound: free sound banks

I still have a visual and acoustic memory of experiences that I can not explain. Sentences and languages I do not know have remained in my memory...etched like a magnetic tape… memories which I can not forget or erase.

“A Manuscript of erasure” is an immersive video which explores themes of memory, absence and presence; what’s to be forgotten and/or remembered oscillating between city landscapes and a desert located in the Middle East. The video depicts a larger question of how history operates and its complex apparatus of being erased and then reinvented again.
