HEADBANGING WITH A CAMERA ATTACHED TO MY HEAD
WITHIN THE ENEMY’S FIELD OF VISION SERIES, 2005-06
Video-installation, one 23” monitor and two 15” monitors, 3 DVD players and mirrors
All these actions from WITHIN THE ENEMY’S FIELD OF VISION have two moments: the action itself and the way it is presented in space.
In this action I tape a camera to my forehead and headbang. There are two versions: the first one in my studio with a blonde wig in front of a mirror, and the second inside the white cube, with a small mirror, light stands with spots and metal music. The image wipes out.
The installation, the idea is to produce an entropic environment that cancels the narrative deployment of the medium by creating a virtual space on the wall with mirrors, that sucks up representation, invaginating the virtual as well as the actual space where the installation is set up.
