1001 Dreams of Occupation (2012)

6:52 min, with sound.

Exploring issues of identity and transformation, Sigurdarson’s multilayered performance-based work approaches what he calls the “diagnosis of the obvious” using imagery to transcend the visual into the emotional through a process of his own conceptualization. This video is shot on the corner of Ali Baba Ave and Barack Obama Str. in Opa-locka township just North of Miami, which has the largest collection of Moorish Revival architecture in the Western hemisphere.
