Steven Go Get Me a Switch

Steven Go Get Me a Switch
Jared Buckhiester
19 min., 2016, USA

‘Told through the voices of three elderly South Carolinian’s who reside in the homes in which they were born, Steven Go Get Me A Switch is an oral history mapping dichotomies of gender, familial mythologies, sexuality, and belief. A heavy use of symbolism commingles with suggestions of narrative proof. The desire to be good and the impossibility of such desire becomes a sharp inaudible pitch, like a dog whistles call to violence.  A taught reinforcement of the environment in which these images were taken, this work sits in opposition to contemporary critical thought, which relies heavily on the death of such symbolism.’
– Dawn Cerny
