This is the latest version of this item.
Stack 1 and Stack 2 are made of several individual videos, researched from historical textile collections. The pieces refer to the similarities between weaving and editing processes, visually building up time, events, emotions and material experience. The serial,recurring mechanisms of both processes employ the montage form theorised by Benjamin in relation to (memory and) film, linking fragments of experience to questions of permanence, recognition of loss and the preciousness of the instance.
While recalling a view of the fragmented body through vertical composition and structure, the Stacks develop narratives whose origin repeatedly folds and unforlds through time:a potentially infinite process of entrances and exits, opening and closing, presence and absence.
