Absence

Dual channel moving image installation

Absence is a video installation Absence is a video installation exploring a reality which is confined by social  constraints. 

Mastane, the presented ancient religion, holds the belief of patriarchal sanctification, where the act of dying raises the lost one to sainthood. Together with the constructed language made to the work,  it reflects upon an exhaustive and interruptive journey, which takes longer and harder then expected, rooted in transcendence,  back from the Holy ground. A portrait of an endless journey, confronted by the arrival of an absence that will never leave, a tangible tension that speaks to impending tragedies and events that are most sensed rather than seen. Absence is a work about our social constructions and the journey back to oneself and the challenges and obstacles encountered along the way.
