I Create as I Speak
8mm film, silent
The film features a tattoo of the amulet ABRACADABRA being inked onto the arm of the artist's partner.
ABRACADABRA - the magic word, a simple solution of apparently unsolvable phenomena - was originally an incantation providing protection and healing powers. Synonymous with the Gnostic Abraxas, the word would be spoken while carved or written in line with it’s hebrew translation I create (A’bra) what (ca) I speak (dab’ra).
This new body of work is all about the new body. Marking, contorting and controlling to create something that exists only really, full and perfect for one brief moment. Thereby examining, objectifying and fetishising.
