I am going to kill you

installation. video, 4:00 min, paper framed, bullet, 2017

 

Is it possible to kill a threat? Can a policy of violence solve problems of violence? In the beginning of the video the artist goes backwards and forwards on an abounded parking lot in Los Angeles. This represents a movement from the present to the past and than back to the present. The artists: “Five years ago, I went to this abounded parking lot at West Olympic Blvd. in Beverly Hills. I found this sheet of paper in the watch cabin. I thought it was scary, but interesting. I took it, although I did not know what to do with it. Now I know what to do with it.“ In the second part of the video is placed in an indoor shooting range in Downtown Los Angeles. The artists literally tries to shoot, to kill the message on the sheet - “I am going to kill you”.
