rosebud;!;!; (unwanted days)
Beyond the rules of gravity, space and time; what happens when what seems effortless on screen, comes to replace our expectations of life in ‘the real’? In rosebud;!;!; (unwanted days) the artist enters a fictional realm, takes on the role of the protagonist and narrates the conversation towards ‘you’; the private observer. Aiming to break down the usage of the female body as a symbolic carrier of sadness and emptiness within narrative cinema, and addressing the expectation that visual pleasure would somehow transform, numb, or give purpose to emotional pain.
