In Melancholia in Arkadia, a series of photos show the interior of a sanatorium in Odessa: a simply furnished room with a television broadcasting scenes from a film, a spinning fan, curtains blowing in the wind, wedding costumes on display. Focus, angle and time changes slightly and seems to create an effect of knowing what is at play and yet at the same time not realizing what it is – balancing on different layers of possible contents.
