Consumption

Consumption, single-channel video, 5 minutes 9 seconds, 2015

Performance by Antonis Sideras

We are a society obsessed with consumption. From the latest electronic gadgets to fashion clothing to out-of-season foods. Need it or not, we want it all, now. Consumption is shaping our lives, our world, our future. We consume, it’s what we do.

In this collaborative project with the performance artist Antonis Sideras, we present an overwhelming scene of a man suffocating from his perpetual demand for consumption, and aim to instigate a discourse: Are we consumed by consumption?
