2022-2023   ✧   video, installation

northern ireland: a defunct territory, woven into a web of colonialism and capitalism. the soil is contaminated with the memory of conflict and the overspill of industry.

using a camcorder, a microphone, and my late grandfather’s accordion, i observe the inevitable decay of borders and hunt for ghosts in the half-light. an investigation of traces in the place i was born.

how can i tell you what i haven’t been told myself?
how can i show the shape of what is missing?
absence becomes presence in a place out-of-joint.

This project, alongside two publications (words always get lost [...] and ghosts in the rift), was exhibited as part of the 2023 KABK Graduation Show.
