Video, HD Color, 5.21 min, 2014 The Goldfinch This film shows the interior of the luxurious “villa of the dictator Enver Hoxha” and follows the path of a goldfinch that enters the villa. The goldfinch is a bird that people often keep in a cage, and it is well know for its beautiful voice. The house in this work becomes the bird cage, and the bird seeks to escape from it. The goldfinch is different from other species of bird in that it is not an domestic bird. If we free it from its cage, the bird can survive by itself even with out the help of its master. The video examines the relation that domestic contexts have with dictatorial regimes.
