FOR THE LOVE
OF LOVE

Jonkhout's recent work 'For the love of love', a found-footage video, shows a portrait of a marriage between a man and a woman. Because the clips were not shot with the intention of them ever leaving the household, these people register a pristine micro-cosmos. Their dynamic raises questions; Are they being funny, of is this serious? Is this a healthy situation? Are they still together?

 

In this poignant, unscripted video which requires the audience to witness this uncomfortably private footage, Jonkhout displays the intricate connections which composes human relationships. It doesn't just make the viewer question what good and toxic behaviour is, it also enforces the viewer to judge, and the impossibility and problem that is inherent to judgement. Each relationship is like a fingerprint, and Jonkhout proves this by showing us a glimpse in the life of this unique couple.
