Waiting (2016)

This video was part of my graduation show at the Breitner Academy. It was shown in a room which was decorated to resemble the studio or apartment of a delusional man who is obsessed by serial killers and has trouble relating to women. This video work reflects on the role of women in (older) film. The woman in the video is doing very little, she is just there smoking… just being there to be observed, as are most female characters in old American films. The perspective of the viewer gives a hint of approaching danger; she is being looked at from outside and seems to be waiting for something. Therefore, the viewer is put in the role of a peeping Tom, or maybe even worse.
