A postcard from an imploded society. Bringing mundane objects to life to interpret place through materials, The Grand Bizarre transcribes an experience of pattern, labor and alienation. Following the collage of textiles, tourism, language and music, the film investigates recurring motifs and metamorphoses function within the global economy.
The Grand Bizarre uses the methodology similar to her formal short films. The film shows a journey of textiles including towels, tablecloths, scarves and carpets. They pass through the baggage tracks, train stations, and airports, following the geographical signs of the boarding pass and globe. Mack, who composed the addictive background music herself, draws a map of imaginary with the patterns and texts. Completed after six years of shooting and editing, the installation is the combination of bizarre objects including wrapped iPhones, iMacs and textiles.
