Perfect Lovers

Large Format Video-projection, duration:22 seconds, without sound. 

Perfect Lovers speaks to the anxieties and concerns of our time and our longing for connection and intimacy. Having spent most of the last eighteen months in our homes in lockdown, the interior space of our homes have become a familiar place of refuge, fear, frustration and relief. 

This work is a contemplation on the oscillation between still and moving image, between fear and hope. It has been made up of twenty-four still images in reference to the twenty-four frames per second in conventional cinema. Each image is an imprint of human movements under the darkness of a bedsheet.
