‘Love’ is an installation in two parts. In the video, a figure swings at a cycle of tennis balls served by an unseen opponent. As the sole player, his motivation wavers until his focus gives way to exhaustion or indifference. It is a game played with no cumulative goal or order and, as it progresses, he loses heart. In the accompanying text – a list – names have been catalogued according to the rhythm of the match.

In exploring the tension between narrative and gesture, ‘Love’ attempts to conflate the rhythm of written language with that of the moving image.
