CHECKPOINT





Checkpoint, 2018
single-channel video with sound
0:24 loop

In this looped video, the subject, a fly, performs the restriction of movement Palestinians face every day. In the creation of the loop, the path is reversed, alluding to the denied entrance Palestinians endure after elaborate, condescending journeys made unnecessarily difficult. In the documentation of this performance, the fly is always constrained in the frame, having never consented to the performance similar to how Palestinians do not consent to occupation.
