The exhibition comprises two contrasting video works, The Perpetual Present (2017) and The Long Still (2014). Both works center on themes of repetition and stagnation: The Perpetual Present reflects on the negative aspects of stillness, while The Long Still 2014 considers the potential in learning to accept and embrace stagnation.
