Tile: Static Retrospection
Medium: Digital Video
Year of production: 2019
Description:

I am exploring how can one acknowledge what is supressed and unconscious within them. My project ventures into the themes of change and frustration that have been triggered by a fragment of memories from my childhood. The projection of the archived video from the early 2000s portrays a dance class which inspired me to become a dancer. This moment made dance crucial throughout most of my life and by using the VHS video now I am trying to reclaim the power position. However, I interrupt the choreography and add more layers to show the dissatisfaction of my inability to articulate myself through the medium. As according to many psychoanalysts, the mind is distorted by emotions and instincts. This video performance piece highlights the struggle of consciously trying to be congruent with one’s emotions.

Title: Charabanc
Medium: Digital Video
Year of production: 2019
Description:
This video was part of an installation done collaboratively with a sound artist. I combine personal archive VHS footage with self portraits filmed on low-fi camera. Layering these together I distort the images even more. I bring back the old technology (in this case late 1990s/early 2000s) and question how it impacts our memory.
