In my series of video works, LIFE, I am building an unsettled relationship between humor, violence, and narrative. The videos feature situations that are reenactments of iconic journalistic photographs. The videos create a new landscape of relation between testimony, history, and temporality, working towards a complication of social narrative in the visual field. What still lingers in the stillness and essential movement contained within these photographs? I am approaching both the impossible difference of the other and exposing the language of that divide and what it tells of re-imagined relations and the moments of possibility.
