Break Down; Pull Down; Strip Down is an installation that disfigures the reflection of self. This disfigurement is teased apart in the dialogue between the broken signal of an individual’s subconscious mutterings recorded and played on a suspended television and the reflection of this in the mirror placed directly underneath it. The dialogue between the stripped, pulled apart television and the quiet mutterings of the portrait create a space that is filled with intimacy. The clinical, almost surgical dismantling of the TV leaves an ominous stillness in the installation. It opens up technology to exhibit what is inside; like an autopsy of television culture, like an autopsy of a fragmented, subconscious, self.
