Oh, Love That Will Not Let Me Go

As part of an ongoing series, years ago I began approaching family members and asking them if they know a song that I might know also–something we can sing together. When performing this exercise with my grandparents, I decided to remove myself from the equation and allow them to sing with one another. The resulting songs, mostly religious, speak to my Grandpa’s 40 year career as a minister, and my grandparent’s complicated relationship with what was their faith. The video and photograph (of the same title) were made in response to this audio, and shown in proximity to one another in exhibition.
