The video installation Throw Brother from the Train originated in the disturbing experience of the artist's recurring dream concerning the death of the her brother which she has had from early childhood to the present day. Recently, wondering if somewhere in her murky unconscious she may indeed occasionally desire him dead, she started to make darkly fanciful videos (Throw Brother from the Train, 'The Haunting' and 'No Weddings and a Funeral') in which she attempts to murder him or, failing that, to sabotage his daily life. The work inhabits a nether world of turbulent passions ranging from adulation to jealously, hinting at strange tensions bubbling beneath the surface of sibling relationships. An excellent remedy for anyone who has ever had to suffer the indignity of being overshadowed by a close relation.
