Only

2014. Video (Over and Over series).

The audio in Only is a looped excerpt from the Kirov-Mariinsky's Swan Lake, representing a dizzying, hopeful moment when the swan believes that she might not have to be a swan forever. Onstage, the ballerina spins in a series of turns across the floor. Whether or not salvation comes will be decided in the next act, and depends upon which version of the ballet one sees.
