“Listen” (2020)

I will be showing this film at the Out of Sight, Out of Mind Exhibition in November. This exhibition is all about spreading awareness about mental health and usually takes place at Summerhall. This year, due to the current situation, we may just have an online exhibition instead. If we do get to have a physical exhibition, I intend to display it on a TV with a rotary telephone in front of it so the audience can listen to it through the phone speaker as if they are on the phone.

3rd Movement was about living in the now and how art connects us. I think it expresses how I’m feeling mentally at the moment because I feel like my life is moving foreword (despite the pandemic) and slowly getting to where I want to be. This is like me “passing the baton” so that other voices can be heard. The unicorn head mask refers to the concept of “being masked”, as in being silenced and not having your voice heard – but it also in a literal sense could be making fun of anti-maskers. I chose the unicorn because it is something that is completely ridiculous and gives a sense of fun to my practice, rather than it just being depressing all the time.

  1. I really like the wording and performance, I would really like to understand the horse head, can you explain more in the text here why the head is worn, I think I know but don’t want to make any assumptions.
