I’m Too Sad to Tell You – Video portrait of Meitel Dohan, 2015

Video installation, black and white, sound; 5 minutes and fifty seconds loop: Soundtrack featuring music by REM.

Inspired both by Andy Warhol’s 1964 Screen Test of Ann Buchanan, Ann, the Girl Who Cried a Tear, and Bas Jan Ader’s 1970-71 mixed media work, I’m Too Sad to Tell You, 2015.  Zoobs’ video borrows the Dutch conceptual artist’s title and features actor and singer Meitel Dohan slowly dissolving into tears to the soundtrack of a well-known love song.
