The Lonesome Cowboy for Melody Panosian is a video/installation in which I perform the surreal of self display. I wanted to ”step aside” and create a situational irony; what seems to be and what is. The working method was much like the Lonesome Cowboy for Florentina Holzinger, influenced by Deborah Hays method where the movements derived from constant questions asked in the body. I wanted to research the matter of heritage – a form beyond the collected experience and performative. We might be entities with inherited memory, a heritage leaking through time, seemingly out of present context. These versatile shapes do not grab habits, confirmations and concepts but they confirm an unprocessed expression. The challenge of all the artificial lights to the violence of the sun rays.
