You‘re Joking, Aren’t You?


You’re Joking, Aren’t You? is a series of vignettes, where the actor, Wayne Atkinson, describes everyday racist incidences in different modes of address, edited together to reveal the processes of becoming and establish new meanings into the narration thus calling into question notions of authenticity and hierarchies of victim-hood. This video installation is also in dialogue with Shirley Clarke’s ‘Portrait of Jason’. This piece should be exhibited on four monitors with headphones on each monitor. Each monitor loops (not synchronized). This piece has also been shown as a single linear projection
