…is a manual followed by a series of re-enactments of self-help videos found on YouTube. Are we in perpetual state of recovery? Can it be overcome? The work appropriates the narratives, voices and gestures of those reproducing recovery as a disembodied and successful process. It catapults these voices back to their context – the infinite online series of self-help videos – allowing the viewer to see the discrepancies and discontinuities between the original and the copy, between the translation of one body to another, between the subject and its desired model.
