The Stoning

Jiří Černický 2011, video, 3:58 min.

In The Stoning, Jiří Černický uses video post-production to alter an amateur video of an actual stoning of a woman. In line with the traditional Arabic manner in which the punishment of stoning is carried out, in the original video the woman is half buried in the ground. In Černický’s video, the only thing we see is the red of her dress.
