Digital video 43:00. In Vaseline (2018) I visit my grandmother’s house shortly after her death. Mourning and desire intertwine in this intimate portrait, as I consider her life through objects, photographs and interviews with family members. The film seeks to destabilize northern identity using formal and informal archives of local history, labour and accent, building to explore sexuality, witchcraft, and cats. You can watch this on vimeo here.
