Ode to Joy

Multimedia installation 2019

Intrigued by a situation at home where for the past 3 years we are attempting to sell a parcel of land that is supposed to buy us a better future I filmed the members of my family in the spaces they currently live in.
I recorded our conversations – they were mostly about their projections of the future, their hopes and dreams but they were as well revealing disharmonious viewpoints and the claustrophobia of being bound by financial dependency.
I brought them together at the same time and space, on the land we are selling.
The instructions were to walk inside the frame in silence, and to literally “do nothing” apart from being present.
