Jonkhout's 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, is this serious? Is this a healthy situation?
In this poignant, unscripted video which requires the audience to witness uncomfortably private footage, Jonkhout displays the intricate connections of which human relationships are composed. 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 judgment. Each relationship is like a fingerprint, and Jonkhout proves this by showing us a glimpse in the life of this unique couple.
