rawane's song
video, 2007

7', 2006

Rawane’s Song is a video in which I express my refusal to talk about the war. The viewer reads my ironic discourse in which the avoided theme is finally not avoided. The video was taped in one take as I walked in artists’ studios while pointing my camera down, following my foot movement, standing up, walking, and then walking faster.

“Rawane’s Song is a work of fiction about running away from reality and finding yourself. The understated soundtrack gives the viewer plenty of silence gaps. Its arbitrariness reflects the random character of identity that defies its roots, like minimal music” (Hans Beerekamp)
