Grosso Modo Gallery and Artists Collective is pleased to present the first International Imago Video Fest, which deals with the written/spoken word and its connection to the world of visuals. The exhibition shows video art , small graphic work and artists books
My most recent video work “You Get...teG uoY” is screened at the festival.
The title of the work refers to the phrase “You Get So Alone At Times That It Just Makes Sense” The sentence belongs to a book of the same title by the American poet Charles Bukowski (1920-1994). The work focus on an individual in a phase and state of being alone.
In addition, the sentence has a strong autobiographical connection to my person. Being alone isn't always painful, but it can be complex and challenging. We may be in a period of longing for companionship and change, but we also need to ask ourselves whether the process of longing and belonging to a social setting has begun or whether we end up intentionally avoiding all belonging and attachment to anyone
The new video contains written and a spoken text which is an exception within my video works.
