Hard Body (2014)

1 min 17 secSingle channel / 2 channel installation / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

Shot from two perspectives, this two-screen work shows a figure crouches over a lawn ripping out handfuls of grass. On the soundtrack we hear music and someone singing a tune, both of which are pitch shifted to a higher speed and frequency. One of several works by the artist which project a psychological dimension onto everyday activities.
