Demur(e)

5 second loop
silent
2018

Demur(e) fragments and appropriates a segment from the film The Wizard of Oz. Projected at a monumental scale, the scene is the moment when Dorothy is left out of the storm cellar. Her movement repeats and reverses in a gestural video loop that suggests an alternate narrative of struggle, echoing current political reservations.
