Every piece of ripped jeans is a riddle of authenticity: did it really happen? Did that hole become a real hole by itself, or did someone tear it intentionally?
“In this lo-fi essay, Pallasvuo leads us on a freewheeling inquiry into the cultural and metaphysical nature of holes. Skittering across a string of audio and visual references - Nirvana, George Bataille, the crucifixion, pit mining - he spirals through the possible meaning and endless potential of the hole, a space for guilt, trauma, artifice and beauty to reside. For those who are familiar with Pallasvuo’s Instagram output (@avocado_ibuprofen), Hole is a filmic extension of his droll inquisitive approach, studded with perceptive observations and melancholic longing.”
