“Through You” is an audiovisual project capturing conversations between the artist and individuals she met through a dating app following the end of a long-term relationship.
The participants stand before the camera, opening up about their experiences with and expectations of online dating. They reflect on recurring relationship patterns, linking these to childhood influences. Break-ups and how they cope are also discussed.
What began as the artist’s personal process of processing a breakup evolved into an opportunity for self-reflection through listening to others. By sharing their vulnerabilities so openly, the subjects provide insight into diverse ways of experiencing intimacy.
Rather than seek romance, the app initially served as a means of companionship during a difficult transition. But the unguarded discussions yielded profound insights applicable far beyond the artist’s own experience. Both she and viewers are invited to contemplate relationship dynamics from new perspectives by stepping into someone else’s truth.
