The Lovers Are the Audience Who Watch. A 24-hour video-poem borrowing its title from a line of poetry by Juliana Huxtable. The sequence is constructed from found footage – largely from music videos and art documentaries – where there is a central figure – the artist – being watched by an audience. Parts of the video have been shown at Mathew Gallery in New York and at the Prelude to the 13th Baltic Triennial at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, Lithuania.

“A POEM BY ANAÏS DUPLAN” is a set of three video-poems made for Daata Editions. The videos feature a line-by-line feed of three of Duplan’s poems: “I Think That I Can Love It” – about the freedom or lack thereof the Black female body – “Why Does It Feel Natural to Want to Be Stable for the Lady in the Mirror?” – on gender instability and social machinery, and “The War of Parasites” – a meditation on war, animalia, and sex. Each video-poem is set across found footage, often featuring black-and-white images of white people in idyllic situations, volcanic eruptions, physical conflict, running in fear, running with semi-joy, and abstractions of light. The set of video-poems, “A POEM BY ANAÏS DUPLAN” attempts to synthesize this particular range of audiovisual and phenomenological experience with the intimacy and habitual quiet of the poem’s page.
