“F/L” takes its point of departure in early anthropology, with its fascination for the relation between magic and primitive conceptions and practices. The magic of names and naming here provides a framework for exploring violent acts of a political nature. The act of naming itself becomes the location for an insurrection. The act of naming becomes one of unnaming. Two voices come into play. The voices belong to the same vocal persona, but are heard in two distinct locations in a virtual space. Through its play of voices and scattered fragments, the video work explores conflicts between formal history and personal narrative, between the story told and untold, between naming and unnaming, utterance and silence. “F/L” turns the viewer into an active participant in deciphering meaning through a meta-discourse that defies conventional expectations throughout.
