'Twenty-Twenty One' project (2017-2018)
I am currently working on a video for my 'Twenty-Twenty One' project, which examines my long-term relationship with my partner in the light of his treatment for heart failure.
This project includes the ‘Home: A Structure on Trial’ (2017) video which was originally commissioned for ‘Talking Transformations: Home on the Move’, and has been shown at the Whitstable Biennale, Ledbury festival and at the National Poetry Library, Royal Festival Hall this year.
The poem by Rafał Gawin became symbolic of his recovery, with the home becoming a place of refuge and safety, whilst also becoming claustrophobic, with the flickering sunlight, reflected upon the floors and doors being indicative of his irregular heartbeat. A selection of photographs will also accompany the two video works and I aim to make this series live on the projects page by the beginning of next year.
