Abstract

Over For the Day is a continuation of a body of work entitled ‘Disjecta Membra’ (translates – scattered pieces), a series of moving image and photographic works that explore society’s relationship with trauma and event, and the documentation of both. The work was made as part of the ongoing project Suspended Trauma. Over for the Day is a short (loopable) video, depicting two events: the endless drifting of a bound figure in a bleak North European landscape and the disruption of matter, airborne in the atmosphere. Devoid of narrative, the figure exists in a space with no specific time or place, trapped in a seemingly pointless repetition.

Over for the Day was selected for the Fleckenstein Gallery at the Flint Institute of Art by curator Tracee Glabb as part of an international programme of video and film screenings.
