As if staring into the blinding light of solar heat. SONNE is a performance to camera of a distilled, appropriated and fragmented version of How Soon is Now by The Smiths. With a Dronology soundtrack in vein of Sunn O))) to give an air of otherness and sibylline electronic channelling. This almost Industrial Sci-Fi capture, instead of “I am the son and heir” I revert this to “I am the sun and air”. The intense spotlight beam isolates my face and silhouette, fixing it in space and annuls time. The light here is a materialisation of the "ungraspable"...
For SONNE I paint my face gold and cover it in 24kt gold dust and wear theatrical black contacts.
Filmed in one take with an adapted Mini DV HD camera as part of Three Points of Contact Residency at GSA
