STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (TRICKED)
Bruce: "Mesmerized by the artist applying the paint. Deft gestures.
The flick of the wrist. The wielding of the brush. The concurrent
demarcations of the gesture on the surface. Tricked I was. Into
thinking this was at all important."

STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (RESENT)
Narrator: "And then there was this artist, who just did a description
of existing art-works. Reproduced these in texts. And these texts
where projected in the empty gallery space. And the voice of a male
narrator was heard. At first the voice of the narrator was clear, and
loving. But after a while the tone changed. Became bitter, resentful.
And jealous, of not being able to make these works himself."

STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (WHO IS THE ONE THAT CALLS
Vicki: "I used to think of myself, my body, as a unity. But now, as I
grow older, I cannot think of my body. As one. I cannot see myself
whole. Cells live within, within, me, the one I call me, communicate,
live in their lives within, together, a fragile ecosystem, itself a
cell, within another. And I ask myself. What is dying within this
system? Who is dying? Who is the one that calls itself one, dying?"

STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (WHEN YOU ARE GONE)
BRUCE: "I will walk out straight
capture your shine
Cracked, with reddened cheek
I will rid myself of excess
thinner than I was I will remember you"

STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (ESTABLISHING SHOT)
NARRATOR: "It is, by all measures, a magnificent place. Imported
wooden floor, meticulously finished, highly polished. The walls so
white, so white, absolutely clean. Exactly proportioned, the space is
a work in itself. And the round table placed at one end: a perfect
fit. A chair at the table, and on the chair, a woman in her early
forties, a bright summer dress in floral print. Hair cut sharp, dyed
jet black, eyes flash green emerald, lips painted bright red. She sits
motionless. We can barely see her breathe."

STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (DISTURBANCE)
A high, cool, white room, where Vicki sits. White-faced. Motionless.
Bruce stands at a distance. He doesn't dare come any closer.
Or perhaps he is ordered not to.
We move in as Vicki speaks, to capture her whisper. Now we see just
her lips, lips painted a brilliant vermillion, skin-down glowing in de

STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (WHEN IS IS ALL OVER)
NARRATOR: "When it is all over, Bruce will squat at the edge of the
pavement. He will blink and sweat in the heat of the morning sun, his
head in his hands. Unthinking, he will watch the water ripple, and
shine, in the gutter. He will sit like this for some time. After a
while he will see small objects pass by: a matchbook from a
backpackers hotel called Homer, and, tailing the matchbook like
straggling ducklings, the torn cardboard matches, unstruck, their
bright heads bleeding red. Only then will he realise that it had been
raining, and the sound he had heard was thunder."
