Inextinguishable Fire

A filmed performance of the artist engaged in a treacherous fire stunt: a 14-second full body burn, shot at 1000 frames per second and extended to 14 minutes of slow-motion flame. The title comes from Harun Farocki’s 1960s film about the impossibility of depicting the horror of napalm on film. Shown here on loop, Inextinguishable Fire references continuous cycles of political uprising and apathy, life and death, ignition and extinguishment.
