INFO

  • I cannot reconcile myself with the idea of time. I cannot control it, slow it down or speed it up – and yet, I try. My interest in duration and consciousness stems from a failure to regain lost and unredeemable time and my process of interacting with images takes on diverse forms in an attempt to trap the uncontainable. The function of my work should not be to attempt to represent my preoccupations but to better produce the feeling that there is something unpresentable. This is reflected in various works, not only with the insatiable desire to capture and contain time, but also by creating impossible scenes, re-appropriating cinema or presenting found objects as readymades divested of their original intention to create ambiguity and self-referential failures to communicate.

The achievement of time in art an experiment that is doomed to failure. I fear the work of art cannot really contain time, at least not entirely, so I set out to create films that are deliciously inaccessible, that are difficult to look at but at the same addictive. By reappropriating material from cinema that was created with the intention of pleasurable viewing, I set out to make my own versions of these scenes – at times using a tiny fraction of the entire movie and at other times remixing the full length of the film. In all the films the scenes are stripped of their original audio which is replaced by repetitive sound effects that emphasise the lack of any beginning or end.
