Global Architecture Platform

Postcard from a
Place called Grief

by Bram Lattré

TRANSFER invites a selection of filmmakers worldwide to share their personal view of the changes both in domestic and public space, in the present circumstances. The video essay by Bram Lattré for TRANSFER NEXT features the stopped present by means of visits to a series of playgrounds. Depicting a public space in Ghent, the short film refers to similar conditions in other public spaces around the world. Like a collection of postcards of familiar places, Lattré poetically describes the suddenly interrupted use of leisure amenities, waiting for life to return.

Bram Lattré (1983) graduated as urban planner and architect at the university of Leuven and Ghent (Belgium). After his studies, he founded the visual collective tBEDRIJF, where he primarily works with intangible materials as light, video or sound. He made light sculptures and interactive video-installations for several festivals throughout Europe and directed several short films in which he focuses on the relation between the human and his social-urban environment. His short film “Il Muro Cattivo” (“The Common Wall”) has been finalist of the TRANSFER Architecture Video Award 2019.

The stopped present could be a good place from which to look at the near past and, most of all, the future.

TRANSFER NEXT aims to invite shared reflections on the new scene that coronavirus will probably usher in.
