‘A LOOSE GOOSE AMOUSE BOUCHE DISCUSSION ON PRACTICE’ Interview with Kopano Maroga
“Concrete poetry on the water”
Mitchell Gilbert Messina (b.1991) works primarily as a video artist in Cape Town, South Africa. He produces short narrative and conversational videos told through found images, re-purposed 3d models, stock footage, foley sound packs, and more recently vfx work and practical effects with pieces of wood. The works employ improvisational strategies to see themselves through: reacting to google results, producing scenes before scripts, and knocking jpgs and mdf sheets against each other until they make meaning.
