The Hiss of the Blow
(16.00 loop, 16mm/HDV. 2009). Two screen installation with field monitor
Visceral invocations of boxing, focusing on Marianne Marston and Angel Mckenzie. The two fighters skip, hit punch bags and shadow box, while at one point the pace slows and the tone becomes more melancholic as Angel sings a torch song a cappella, articulating her history.
