‘F.L.A.G.’ is a single channel video structured as a three part digestive act, placing the body in direct relationship to architecture through moments of ingestion, digestion and excretion. Using a bilingual script to weave in photos from my personal archive documenting family in Mozambique with architectural scale models in the studio. House and body are portrayed as sites of containment inflected by histories of European colonialism. Through surreal acts in ingestion/expulsion the video attempts to address how this history might be digested.
The video was originally exhibited at ‘Cleave’, part of the GI 2018 across the city programme, alongside two sculptures, ‘Shelter (hot blue scream) I & II’.
