Divided from You, Surrounded with You


Video, DV, 2019, color, sound, 5:46 minutes

A single channel video meditation on memory and the poetics of movement, exploring its physical, affective and political dimensions. The scenes weave together scenes of urban spaces in London, where the artist has relocated alone; the scenes are narrated by phonecalls with the artist’s mother, in which she speaks about her own life story. The scenes, soundscapes and words use memory to construct a historical account about reslience and identity.

Video available as part of the Present Futures archives at the Women’s Art Library, Goldsmith’s University, London.
