Something in the throat•
In Something in the throat, a woman tries to utter words when she finds herself in full silence between saying and not saying. The command of feminine silence paralyzes her and there is only the possibility of the micromovement that ties her throat. Digital video art made with a fixed camera. Black and white post-production, layers and fades. Sound poetics made up of a sound / verbal register and stereo editing processes. To be played / projected in a loop.
Being able to say, introduce ourselves and tell who we are, allows us to give ourselves existence and identity, weave subjective networks from which to collectively choose and constitute ourselves. But what happens when we cannot name ourselves, when words and the body fight? What happens when we become paralyzed and remain hidden in the middle of the struggle between words, desire and silence?
