The title “Going to Bed Hungry” refers to an art performance/video installation by Exildiscount, which was simultaneously video taped from 3 camera perspectives, called “Of the Eternal Fear of Going to Bed Hungry”. We remixed and processed this footage in our own visual style, interpreting the track in a kind of live video performance.
A child being sent to bed without dinner? No, here’s a punishment more pernicious and severe: a life lived in the shadow of a dark past, marred by the attempt to break out of the sway of ideology, biological family, normative identity. A life that has left you hungry, while a history of trauma keeps spoiling your appetite. Here’s to the healing rage – one of the many steps on the way to redemption and owning your truth.
