Jonathan Trayner – Transitional Phase

2014, digital video

Three interlinking subjects; a man shaving his head in front of a stove, the same man with an ape mask dancing alone on a beach, and a gorilla in a zoo enclosure are woven together to suggest a story of human alienation from nature. Continuing the tradition of silent cinema the narrative is provided by inter-titles with musical accompaniment provided by Bill Kenny of Kleinzeit and Men of Good Fortune.
