Dear Abbé is an installation created in collaboration with Rujuta Rao and includes a single channel video projection, printed images and texts.
The video addresses the statue of Abbé De Faria, a pioneer in the study and practice of Hypnotism, caught in the act of hypnotizing a mysterious woman.
The statue is located in a traffic circle in Panjim, Goa, India. The project explores the act of hypnosis, the choice to be hypnotized and power dynamics from a feminist perspective.
The installation was exhibited at Hollows Artspace in Brooklyn, NY between March 30 – April 17, 2016
