This sculptural video installation features a worn, transplanted section of a wall. The interior space unveils a collection of objects. A large-scale HD video projection covers the exterior wall. The video documents a hermetic woman who “nests” inside of the wall.

"Utilizing close-up shots with a narrow depth of field, Crewe's sculptural video installation resists full resolution, placing emphasis instead on the corporeal response of the viewer. In the video, the artist presents an antihero: a hermit or hoarder. The amorphous figure’s unfixed, unidentifiable presence surfaces and retreats from view within an accumulation of objects."
