Jos Porath Substantial Amendments

© Jos Porath

"Substantial Amendments" is a visual installation/short film about despondence, alienation and the performativity of anger. Through images set to music (both songs written and performed by Soap&Skin from the album Lovetune for Vacuum, 2009 Couch Records/PIAS Records, rights for the songs remain with the artist/record company), "Substantial Amendments" deconstructs and compresses an afternoon through the course of which two young people externalize their sense of displacement (spatial and emotional), the indifference and consequential lack of comfort in another physical body's company, and a recurring sense of invisibility, insignificance and immobility.
