A video installation consisting of a single monitor mounted at the end of a vast grey box that extended across the space – nearly invisible, as it was illuminated only by the light from the screen, but still making its monolithic presence felt to the viewer. The monitor carried a black and white image of couples first embracing and then relinquishing the embrace. The gender combinations were made more amorphous through the androgyny and short hair of the participants. The movement happened in silence, and built up to a poignant repetition of need and loss, the 'farewell’ becoming increasingly powerful.
