Stowaway

  Stowaway video

video 4min27s 2008

Originally created for 'Starting Point', an art exhibition in a hotel room in Edinburgh, Scotland, the video was made using the hotel wardrobe and screened in-situ on the hotel room TV monitor. The film shows the artist sleeping in the wardrobe accompanied by the sound of breathing, inducing thoughts of childhood plays and magic portals. But with the dark ambience and the disturbing sound, the film also holds more sinister connotations of displacement, of refugees and of illegal immigration.
 

Filmed together with Tonya McMullan.

Exhibited at 'Starting Point', Edinburgh 2008 and 'CrossTalk Video Art Festival', Budapest 2010.
