A State of Withdrawal, 2014

(HD video sculptural installtion) 8 mins

The Piece is shown on a HD Screen inside a wooden voting booth. The video begins with an unknown menace resembling a politician or a businessman walking towards us, it cuts to a rope being fed through a hole in the wall to the distorted sounds of swollen cogs and machinery. Next a man tied with the same rope and with his eyes closed is drawn back towards a white architectural space until he cannot move anymore. The experiment unfolds with the menace painting the man progressively with a paintbrush, devoid of any humanity, or artistry and the nightmare continues.
