  • With direct address in referencing performance (actionist) video "Lashout" creates an atmosphere of conceptual tension as well as hoping to function as a forum of cultural therapy by using sounds, image and texts. Images which propel the viewer into the rhetoric of judgment and fantasy located in contemporary violence and sexual cultures. A singular action (by the artist) make witness of this action a "snuffing out" of a character whose identity is not disclosed. It is only the "characters in text" appearing on the screen that give glues as to who it might be - placing the viewer on a fine line between
    what one could consider justice or sexual pleasure.
