You See the Woman
Two-channel video installation

The channels are projected separately onto two screens, facing each other at a distance. The locations of the screens allow the audience to experience only part of the story (the woman), but not the whole (the woman) at the same time.

It invites the audience’s understanding but also rejects a complete one. This process mirrors how recurringly do we attempt to understand one and the other, but almost always fail to a certain extent.

 

Her hair is damp. The air is hot and tense.

 

She smiles.

 

 

The fan spins, and the wind caresses the curtain. It is a sunny afternoon.

 

The woman sits on an unmade bed.
