Three dancers move from one space to another in an old Russian factory, affirming a moment of stagnation in the endless time. A meditative journey, the main character of the film is the factory; the dancers as the supporting roles. Throughout filming, the factory was under renovation to be the new venue of Biennale – another layer of time to become.

Time Subjectives in Objective Time is part of Kallio’s film series, Searching for Flow. The film is a collaboration with a Russian dance group Zonk'a and partly commissioned by 2017 Ural Industrial Contemporary Art Biennale.

Director's Statement

Sometimes when you are in the right place at the right time, magic can happen — this was the experience working with dance group Zonk’a in Yekaterinburg Russia. Originally conceptualized as a short documentary, it was reimagined through dialogue with the wonderful dancers and revealed an opportunity to create a film about layers, time, and being.
