My Want of You Partakes of Me

54' | 4K DCP | 5.1 | 2023

Single channel film and 2-channel installation



My Want of You Partakes of Me interrogates digestion as the fundamental condition for being in the world, a process of physiological, psychological, spiritual, literary and scientific dimensions. Multiple storylines trace the poetics of incorporation as a matter of metamorphosis and decay, the philosophy of matter and imperial conquest, industrialisation and annihilation, poetry and parenting, love and citation.

"A philosophical yet poetic exploration of becoming, which warps into mind and body, inside and outside, soil and territory, literature and history, and even into love. A visually daring and innovative film."
