Analogues, Vacancy
14:09 min
Analogues is a series of three short videos by Simon Gush, that address the idea of political belief. Made in collaboration with James Cairns, the videos produce three scenarios, each an analogy which attempts to understand an aspect of how this belief might function. The first video, Vacancy, meditates on the relationship between belief and act. The second, Plainsong, describes the dizzying effects of a crisis of faith. Distance, the final video, seeks to imagine the effects of a world devoid of belief.

The three videos are loosely inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s trilogy of faith, Through a Glass Darkly (1961), Winter Light (1962) and The Silence (1963), through which he charted his own crisis of faith. Bergman’s films concluded in his embrace of atheism. In an inversion of this, the Analogues series sides with the reaffirmation of political belief.
