SYNOPSIS

In cigarettesandwich , Ugo Rondinone evokes the boredom and sadness that accompanies moments of everyday solitude. The video loops a sequence from Rainer Werner Fassbinder's film Götter der Pest (Gods of the Plague) 1970, depicting actor Harry Baer walking along a brick wall, accompanied by the hour-long 'Sleepy song' by English band the Tindersticks. The monotonous, repetitive imagery and wistful, meandering character of the music is intended to lull the viewer into an all-encompassing melancholy.
