Receiving

1999, Video, 20:00 (Colour, Stereo)

by Sharon Alward

Receiving explores the idea of hospitality. We never know who we are. Each of us is the destiny of the other. According to Baudrillard, hospitality represents a reciprocal, ritualized and theatrical dimension. He asks, Whom are we to receive and how are we to receive them? What rules should be followed? For we exist solely to be received and to receive, not to be known and recognized.
