About The Beginning

Installation Canada 2011 No dialogue 0:02:25

Single channel installation created to be exhibited in a loop before Punctum & Back physical performance. Installed in the space it operates as the shadow of a gallery spectator entering the wall, in front of which the performance will occur. Cette monobande a été créée pour être diffusée en boucle avant la performance Punctum & Back. Elle présente l’ombre d’un spectateur qui traverse le mur devant lequel la performance aura lieu.
