The unconventional and radical approach of TITO ON ICE to history, journalism and documentary filmmaking demanded the creation of an entire world made up of discarded fragments and waste products – little shreds of “reality”, collected and meticulously pieced together again to form a new kind of realism. Designed and created by Max Andersson with contributions by fellow artists Lars Sjunnesson and Gunnar Lundkvist, the sets mix present, past and future locations – geographical as well as psychological – mirrored through several layers of subjectivity. Some of these landscapes and interiors were displayed at exhibitions in Ljubljana and Berlin (where the pictures above were taken).
