Props for Drama: Suspension of Disbelief (2013)

The term suspension of disbelief refers to the viewer’s willingness to accept the presented narrative as “real”, within the set boundaries of the fiction. This allows him to identify with the story and empathize with its characters.

In Props for Drama: Suspension of Disbelief, all the elements that previously featured in the exhibition are brought together in a narrative whole. A surreal musical film plays against an abstracted background typical of the genre and ushers the spectator into a "story within a story", where fiction and reality merge into an inseparable whole.
