Lockdown Tableau, 2022
2.56 minutes (loop)
Lockdown Tableau is a 3D-rendered film consisting of four lockdown tableaus circulating as planets in their orbit around the sun. Lockdown Tableau centers around themes such as identity, lockdown and representation with reference to the pandemic situation. It depicts the artist’s everyday life in different domestic settings, during the different Covid-19 lockdowns from 2020 and onwards, where she as many others lived in a bubble at home. In a situation like this we tend to forget how our own daily lives influences the larger picture and universal sphere and vice versa. Like an orbit with its meditative circular appearance Lockdown Tableau reminds us of how our inner and outer landscapes are intertwined.
