TAPECODE 1051.01

Filmed on site at a stretch of the former Berlin Wall, this work digs into the artist’s divided personal identity and family history, and in so doing evokes a sense of displacement and ambiguity. A soundtrack that sits uncomfortably between a shouted SOS Morse code signal and a melodic choral arrangement furthers an affective and unnerving uncertainty. “Wall” is a reflection on the human condition and the conflicted self, while also paying homage to Marina Abramović and Ulay’s seminal video AAA-AAA.
