We Are Perfect
Multi-channel video
3 channel video installation
20 minutes
Edition of 3 + 2AP

This two-part work is made up of video and photography. The video is composed of three interrelated images, each shot from different angles and perspectives that depict close-up shots of young men and women with dignified but solemn expressions against the blue sky. The photographs depict young men and women on the back of a mule holding the reins and calmly gazing into the distance, in a seemingly heroic gesture made ironic by the mule’s sterile nature and its existence as a work animal.
