Geopolitics & The Videos of b.h.Yael

by Richard Fung

Fierce: Women's Hot Blooded Film and Video, Mar. 10, 2010, pp. 36-37

Hamilton: McMaster Museum of Art, 2010

Richard Fung discusses the video work of b.h.Yael in Fierce: Women's Hot Blooded Film/ Video, which "denaturalizes boundaries and borders by excavating their origins in power, interrogating their philosophical underpinnings, probing their role in human and natural devastation, and dying the mistrust and sometimes violence engendered in their creation. Each video has a focus, (apocalyptic culture, Israel/Palestine conflict, the Summit of the Americas), but each are linked by a "profound engagement with the land". In a moralistic tone, Fung ends the article in saying each video impresses upon the viewer to appreciate the materiality of the land, beyond real estate or territory.
