"Blow Bolt"


Bezalel MFA show



Two-channel video and sound installation:

A looped recording is commentary from a 200m race featuring Usain Bolt. In that race Bolt is crowned the world's fastest man. The narration is gradually speeding up until it becomes unclear and stressful. It's only after recovering from the disorientating rush of sound that one becomes aware of a window looking out onto two screens. We see a woman blowing, furiously, energetically, at a huge mound of coal. This gesture is met with the narration and gives it yet another dimension. It reveals the hysteric running in circles and at the same time emphasizes the intensity and strength
