to be veiled. (Faye Mullen)
In the folds of the linen there is a veil that unveils; not a revelation alone but a sentencing alike. Through still life and tableau vivant and yet neither one nor the other, to be veiled articulates the act of absencing to visually form not the loss of the figure, nor the death to this figure but rather the death within; the death that composes the figure.
A performance for a large-scale single-channel video installation.
Fabric measuring thirty feet in length, barren field, artist’s body.
Dimensions of the installation vary according to space.
HD, Colour, Silent. Endless loop. 2012.
