Video installation/Wool, textile
2004 ArtenÎle, Geneva - Switzerland
«Vivre sa vie», a collective exhibit organised by Alexia Turlin, Milkshake agency
No title is a video installation (45 minutes) dealing with the difficult action of “letting go”. Embroidered on fishnet stocking, a feminine and sensual material, the action of letting go appears only as the work is executed. With simple gestures coming from the feminine tradition of embroidery, I compare this painstaking labour with the exercise of wanting, of being able to and of knowing how to let go; an intention that the static and continuous shot of the image means to reinforce.
