Still from Untitled (bundle) 2018. Filmed in Tokushima, Japan.
I travelled to Japan in September this year and filmed a new work, Untitled (bundle). It is another absurdist work, this time examining the things we carry around, literally, metaphorically, unthinkingly......... unwittingly? I wonder if it's a personal prayer or meditation, slow down, stop running, drop it. I wasn't sure about the word bundle, and fossicked around for something else, including the origins of the word bundle (believed to be byndelle, meaning "binding"), which was even more apt for my thinking, but then circled back to bundle, because it's coarse and punchy and that's more me, really. I will be exhibiting it in 2019 and will be posting stills over on my instagram.
