Don’t Hurry, Don’t Worry (2010)

Don’t Hurry, Don’t Worry, 2010, 4-Channel HD Video Installation with Sound


Don’t Hurry, Don’t Worry utilizes an archive of footage, systematically recorded over a period of years within the apartment of the artist’s grandparents. 10 Chiltern House in Ealing in western London became the stage set for this work after the artist’s grandparents passed away. By projecting the old footage back onto the original spaces where it was recorded in the flat, Kansara creates a portal or a window into the past. Re-filming these projections in the kitchen, living room, dining room , and bedroom the work evokes how inseparable we become from the spaces we inhabit, which through a lifetime lived function as an extension of our bodies and ourselves.
