Perpetual Explosion, 2020
Video, 4m

Perpetual Explosion observes the actions involved with closing a shift at working in a petrol station and offers a new and final act that threatens the understanding of the event -- the act leads us to reflect on economies of value.
What would happen if the chain is broken? Is the small act of rupturing everyday ritual(s) of consumption/production in itself an act of exorcism, insurgence?

Exhibited as part of the exhibition I WILL TAKE THE RISK (2020) at AZAN space, part of LisbonArtWeekend, Lisbon, PT
