Rock 2020

Single-channel video, 6 min, without sound.

Reflecting on the contradiction between the stable an unstable, the work title refers to both a rock, characterized by being strong, reliable and hard, and to rock, moving gently from side to side. While the stone is solid, the body changes and ages with time. The duality is apparent in the folded body simulating the shape of a stone as well as the unresting human body. Expressing both rest and the possibility of slipping, the work evokes safety and something dangerously unknown.
