MAMAN – 2011
Upon reaching the gallery, viewers were asked to wait in a queue to enter as only one visitor was allowed to occupy the space of the work at a time. Once inside, the viewer, entirely unsupervised by invigilators or staff, encountered a single video projection of the film Donnie Darko; aside from this nothing else was included in the gallery space. Each person could stay for as long as they wished, although time spent inside was always at the expense of another’s time inside. The film functioned as backdrop to the viewer’s lone experience, which for everyone was completely unique, spelled out by the fact that each person entered the work at a different moment in the film’s unfolding.
