Capriccio I (2016)

45 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

'Capriccio' is translated as "a musical composition with a relatively free form played lively".

"Capriccio I is a site specific sculpture that appears to float freely... (in) a dead space that once presented sculptures to the public. The work is documented as though someone has stumbled on the work for the first time and is capturing it like it’s some form of paranormal activity—it’s not clear whether the sculpture is real or not."
