Zabludowicz Collection is proud to present Plague, a new video installation by Puck Verkade that imagines eerie parallels between ecological and mental breakdown. Narrated by a fly that fantasises about human extermination, surreal analogies between the tormented psyche and the exploited Earth unfold, climaxing in a Kafkaesque metamorphosis between a housewife and a housefly.

Verkade’s moving image work reconsiders the archetypes and narratives that shape human experience and social structures. Delivered with humor and a distinct taste for the absurd, her videos tell stories from alternative perspectives, making space for the unheard and under-represented. Shifting between the different visual modes of stop motion animation, green screen and direct to camera performance, her fast-paced montages have the sensation of a moving collage; a dense juxtaposition of layered images and sounds in a cartoon reality.
