Rheuma 2013



Digital Print



'Rheuma' thematically relates to the video piece 'Trooping the Other (2011) and is an altered found image dislocated from its original context and re-presented. The image a militarised bass drummer wearing a dionysian motif has had its head blurred as if flowing, the identity of the drummer has been lost. The title takes its name from the Greek word rheûma meaning current, stream, discharge or to flow.
