Prospect 3: Mongrel Moods
Video by Dorain Henderson

Dorain Henderson: Headache
Dorain Henderson: Headache

Dorain Henderson. Headache 1995 (video still). colour, 21 minutes.
17 Feb 1996 – 24 Mar 1996

Themes of alienation haunt the video production of Dorain Henderson, a recent graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Headache, a 21-minute tape completed in 1995, confronts the intimate illusion of home video with a poetically controlled vision of family dissolution. Short tapes such as Narcissistic Endeavours (1993) and Landscape Suicide (1994) also use repetition, out-of-synch audio and surreal displacements to intensify the aura of psychological dysfunction.
