Curse on my Dreams

Video, Found Footage, duration 2' 15",  1998

 

Edited from found footage. The video explores the notion of speaking through silence. An interview with an American war veteran promises the telling of a story after 50 years of silence but portrays mainly a private world of untold memories.

This video is part of a body of work which includes Words In Silence. Seeking to find a voice for the female subject Words in Silence stays within an ambivalence of control and failure and plays with the paradoxical notion of speaking through silence.
