Poverty vaccinated you face (2014)

3 min 4 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"Collected still pictures and video follow a structural question intending to place the audience in a state of insecurity. The unnamed protagonists return to their empty house and wasted city of their childhood as adults. A chaotic improvised video story of art's place in the technology of the early aughts."
