BUBBLE HYSTERIA
7 min 17 sec, single channel HD video, 2012

A mouth as a space can seem to be a strangely positioned frontier, located halfway between inside and outside; it acts as a sort of gateway for a haphazard assortment of social and biological necessities ranging from speech to nourishment, from breathing to sexual pleasure. People often repeat simple actions in an attempt to relieve fatigue, stress or anxiety. In “Bubble Hysteria,” I reveal unconscious desires behind the meaningless action of blowing bubble gum, which is expressed in hysteric, mechanical and repetitive movements with the disembodied and fragmented mouth without a face.
