Gestures of Matter (2020), HD video, 3'20 excerpt (original 12'30)
Gestures of Matter deals with a range of characters who embody different voices to reflect on political and economic excesses. One can watch the oscillation between extremes — of gluttonous gorging and enforced fasting, of subservient service with a smile, of scathing internet reviews, all-you-can-eat challenges and kinetic kebabs that form themselves into DNA helixes. The work is an absurd and layered reflection on terms such as "you are what you eat" — thinking more about the transactions that are present in a capitalist economy, such as consumption, desire and ethical responsibility.
