The Stranger

Tracey Snelling's avatar Tracey Snelling

The Stranger is a new time-based video work made specifically for this exhibition. Combining Tracey Snelling's small scale sculptures with the outdoor environment of landscapes and cityscapes, alternative means are used to represent the main character. As he wanders from place to place through different distinct cultures, the idea of belonging and identity will be explored. There are two narrated poems, one in English and Spanish, the other in Hebrew and Arabic, with concurrent subtitles below. The poems are similar, yet one speaks of being alone, and the other speaks of us all being one. Part pioneer, part wanderer, The Stranger travels from Tokyo to Istanbul, from Beijing to Texas, and in the end, finds that we are all one. Co-produced and co-directed with Idan Levin, and edited by Kyung Lee, The Stranger is a continuation of Snelling's exploration with scale shift, the combination of sculpture and environment, her sociological study of culture, and video-based medium.
