Video work



The work depicts an unidentified protagonist who appears to be residing at the bottom of the ocean. The character recites The Morning Roundup, a poem by the American writer Gilbert SORRENTINO (1929-2006), whose shifting perspectives and tenses underscore the video’s attempt to describe things that are inherently indescribable.
