"Re:Neptun" is a reenactment of the Neptun Trilogy, combining the (non-digital-media) performance with body-art elements of all three pieces (2011-13) in the September 2014 live event that happened (including audience) site-specifically at the ex-Neptun factory beach. Instead of sardines, needle-fish was used time-specifically (no sardines were available due to full moon). The video is an edited documentary of the reenactment event that lasted about 30 minutes.

Beginning with a fluxus-inspired body-art experiment in 2011, followed by a site-specific video piece in 2012, the trilogy concluded in 2013 with a video installation within a performance-in-absence: "Neptun" was the biggest factory in Komiža, presently its dilapidated premises are owned by an international investment company from South Africa. The fish-processing plant had united several smaller local companies, reaching back to a rich fishing history and know-how, it used to be the economic pride of Komiža. The premises are officially closed to the public now, but the beach in front of the factory is being used by local people for bathing and fishing.
