Schwenk, but of the drip, drip, of long haul no end in sight solitude, they know nothing, 2011

Synopsis:

This is a simple video work with music and sound. It is engagingly framed and provides the foundations
of a story of a mental asylum (that is no longer in use), which the viewer completes with their own
constructed narrative.


but of the
drip,
drip,
of long haul no end in sight solitude,
they know nothing

tells stories about asylums in a beautifully simple, yet powerful way. The work considers
spaces, lives and environments that are off limits to most of society, as well as looking at the notion
of what performance in the everyday means for those who live in a space where private and public
co-exist – sometimes simultaneously.
