ON NOTHING – SHY BEN ARI
A woman stands on her own doorstep, exploring her possibilities, stepping out, then stepping back in. In the course of the video, the house changes, takes on new forms, disassembles and reassembles, but with no real progress, and the change is merely superficial. The days go by, circularity takes over, and the action loses its meaning as time passes. The repetitiveness erases the moment, leaving the woman with a sense of a drowsy standstill.
This work commissioned from Shy Ben Ari was chosen out of 120 submissions.
