TEETH, 2019. 

Moving Image, duartion approx 15 min. 

Choreographer for ‘TEETH’, a moving image work by artist Jennifer Martin

An eager couple are interrogated by UK Home Office agents endures a series of assessments that become progressively performative to evidence the legitimacy of their relationship. ‘TEETH’ addresses the entanglement of love, power, and administration in the UK spousal visa process. In January 2017, former Home Secretary Amber Rudd wrote, 'illegal and would-be illegal migrants and the public...need to know that our immigration system has "teeth"'. Her letter, written to then Prime Minister Theresa May, was leaked in April 2018 amid reporting on the Windrush Scandal. Teeth are the bite of the UK immigration system, its violence and desirous devouring.
