The Knot Between

Cherie Valentina Stocken

2006, 05:14 minutes, colour, English


How does it feel to stand between two cultural groups at war, knowing that together they build your identity? For some peoples of mixed descent, they feel they are a knot and a problem that both connects and forces the two cultural families together in order to deal with the situation of post colonialism. In this video artwork, a woman suffocates under a layer of plastic. Time is both slowed and quickened as this woman struggles for her identity, her balance, and her life.
