Velociraptor

2006

A voice-over recites clichés about the dissolution of relationships to a black screen. Suddenly the artist appears on screen adopting the tropes of the fierce Velociraptor. In this tongue-in-cheek vignette the pain of a break-up by is illustrated by playing with pathos and humour. With visual references to Murnau’s film Nosferatu (1922) the piece questions ideas about the ultimate sacrifice for love.
