We Need Each Other, We Need Each Other, (You Know We Do) (2017)

6 min 19 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"We Need Each Other, We Need Each Other (You Know We Do) brings together six months of filmed footage and written text, produced between November 2016-April 2017. Through narration of seemingly disjointed footage (an approach not dissimilar to earlier works*) the artist attempts to guide the audience through disarray; a kind of organised chaos, offering comfort and discontent along the way.

We Need Each Other is another internal argument made tangible, the fight to be comfortably alone; to plead the case for a sense of belonging to indifference, somewhere outside of ourselves.”
