It’s a Wonderful, Wonderful Life

Video-performance 04:47


One of us is dancing against a sunset to the pop song called “Wonderful life”. However, in the first moments, it becomes clear that she is disabled, the background is a scrappy video-manipulation and the song, by Black, is a sad one. The glitches in the green screen effect mimick her missing arm, the dance is sensual while the lyrics are mostly about loneliness, the sound is poor quality. The work is about an attractiveness, that seems to be there, but not quite.
