/exhibition information

/WHERE WHERE THERE THERE is a video installation based on Gertrude Stein's play Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights. Drawing from the themes found in Stein’s play, the work incorporates traces of the original text interwoven with other found “texts” such as interviews, documentary footage, and videos on youtube. The found texts are used as a secondary “script” from which a multiplicity of roles, scenes, and narratives emerge.  The work addresses the reiteration of performance through various structural tropes (cinematic and theatrical) and the relationship between performance and the camera.
