I made this video with my Mother on an anniversary of my Father's passing. I made the video as a reference to the female role within the family, women have been taking care of men for centuries. I also wanted to explore the notion of the 'man of the house'; the idea that masculinity and responsibility are passed on from Father to Son.

By having my Mother dress me in my late Father's work clothes, she is protecting me by adding layers of generational, constructed masculinity and in the process she slowly disappears behind my growing presence.
