Finitude (Numbered.)

2018

Video Installation with dead flies on acrylic sheet

A loop of 3 minutes

The simile ‘moths to flames’ is often described as an irresistible and dangerous attraction to something or someone.

Finitude (Numbered.) explores a modern notion of the simile, working with the lack of autonomy over instincts, choices and time. Deriving from the notion of ‘existential dread’, the video installation presents a nest of eventuality where time stops for no one and death comes for everyone.
