I Remember


Appropriated material

Single-channel video and soundscape

Duration: 9 minutes, 32 seconds (with title or installation loop without title)

Aspect Ratio: 4:3



In the single-channel video work I Remember, appropriation has been used to construct a personal narrative, with the use of dark and ominous imagery and soundscape, to explore the repression of memory. The fragmented narrative is built out of black and white images altered with black frames with text and moves between past, present and dreamlike sequences. The soundscape is created from appropriated material – sound fragments that have been digitally manipulated, layered and looped.

I Remember was nominated by Mike Sperlinger, LUX, London, and artist Zineb Sedira for the Salon Video Art Prize at Matt Roberts Arts in London, 2010, and was selected for and received an honorary mention at Videonale 13 at the Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany in 2011. The work was subsequently selected to go on tour to a number of places including an exhibition at GoMa in Glasgow in 2011.
