For A Relationship

Jim Verburg

2007, 04:15 minutes, colour, English


A diaristic portrayal of ties with family, friends, and lovers. The piece focuses on Verburg’s own passing life, which is summarized in quickly flashing photographic stills of vacations taken, sexual exploits, tender exchanges and conversations, and encounters with landscape. What emerges is a system of values, a life lived according to objectives, that the artist is eager to share. In the piece, his hopeful attempts at communication with his father are riddled with expectations, and are continually foiled.
