"IT'S NOT A QUESTION OF ANXIETY"VIDEO ART

By composing objects and movers, Ettun creates “handheld histories” that examine transformations of cultural and psychological narratives through the lens of personal perspectives. The purposefully awkward, improvised movements visualize these shifting perspectives and present nomadic quest as a form of questioning. Her work attempts to invert the usual conception of movement and stillness in relation to the ephemeral. She has also stated that she is interested in finding stillness in movement and movement in the still/sculpture and see how they contradict and complement each other. Her sculptures embody physical gestures inviting the viewer to mirror them with their own bodies.
