Do you still need me (2017)

21 min 20 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

A series of performative scenes take place in nature, each activated by oddly disjointed juxtapositions; a woman and man adopt performative poses in a beach side landscape; karaoke sessions take place in a forest and at the beach. The gentle to mournful songs in the video are accompanied by silent individuals who evoke a spectre of alienation.
