In between describes a migration. The video combines images from the coffeground with the reconstruction of a real way that one part of the artist’ s family made from Ainteb, today Gaziantep in Turkey, passing through Aleppo (Syria) on the way to Buenos Aires, Argentina in the time between 1915 and 1926. The road is interspersed with images of the coffee ground, poetical abstractions of different possible outcomes, interwoven in a way that leads oneself to be forever „In between“ two or more geographies.
