That's Why We End

2012-2014, three channel video (20 minutes), Mart Stam armchairs, pyrite, dress shirts, bowtie, scent
That's Why We End is made from the 236 colour films that Gilles Deleuze discusses in his texts Cinema I (1986) and Cinema II (1989). The work explores a relationship between a dream analyst and one of her clients: the former, a composite character of numerous on-screen women, and the latter, an off-screen male voice. The voice of the client is scholar Eric Cazdyn. The therapy session is divided into three parts and is installed with two sculptures discussed in the narrative, a stack of scented dress shirts and bow ties and a piece of meteorite that has struck the gallery wall. A stack of notepads accompanies two parts of the session.
