Rolling out (2009 – 2013)
1 photo / 2 videos
The work consists of two videos and a single photo. The picture entitled ‘Grandmother with dough-glory’ was taken in 2009, at the same time we also created the raw material of a stop-motion animation, in which my grandmother rolls out a dough to a big circle. I used long-time exposure photos to depict the process. After my grandma had passed away in 2013, I finally finished the work and edited the images to moving pictures, and in addition I recorded the pair of the film, too. In this second video I myself try to fulfil the same rolling out, documenting it in real time. Repeating the same action sheds light on the lack of the late performer, the need of continuity, the repetition of female roles, and can be considered as an attempt of processing the missing person’s lack.
