In the video work “Mutual Red”, 2013, two men balance on each other’s head, creating a figure that is physically almost impossible to perform. Their performative act creates a strong correlation between them, which reflects mutual perseverance and extreme effort. Shot in close-ups that concentrate exclusively on their faces, the action appears intense and evokes an awkward feeling that subconsciously links us to the conditions of our bare existence.
