A Woman Walking Away From Fate
The video acts as an unusual excerpt from an unspecified narrative whole. As such, the tumultuous breakdown that leads to a radical transformation is without the points of a moral compass, the cause and effect of the documented event being conspicuously absent. Since there is no immediate framework with which to locate the performance, the visceral emotional display is left as a loan signifier, uncomfortably exposing itself for the purpose of interpretation.
Part of the ‘Work’ project (2008), an investigation into the relationship between productivity and identity.
