The ongoing series of video works (5 x10min) tentatively titled the Address are epistolary in nature, presenting auto-fictional exchanges and emails in video form. The work thinks of the letter/the email as a medium that brings the private to public reflecting on violence, distance, separation, absence, loss and desire. The work’s effort to make the private public is a grappling with shame but also acts as a gesture of poetic justice and an ongoing work on forgiveness - of the self and of others. It operates within a genealogy and history of video letters as an artistic medium, considering questions of how the personal and political coincide, and how the personal, particularly as it relates to women’s narratives and lives, has resonances with structural political issues, particularly in the context of Egypt’s 2011 uprising. Supported by a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts. Developed initially at a Union Docs residency in 2019 and later in a Harvard AFVS class led by Joana Pimenta and Lucien Castaing-Taylor.
