Untitled (Greencard): Video

Untitled (Greencard) is the second in Hibbert-Jones and Talisman’s series of works examining inequality, civil rights and immigration policies towards same sex couples, prior to the legalization of gay marriage in 2015. Untitled (Greencard) is a birds’ eye view, one-shot video of Hibbert-Jones and Talisman with their young son, working on a large-scale drawing. As the video progresses, it becomes clear that the drawing is of Talismans’ newly issued Green card. Deceptively simple, the video describes the precarious struggle gay couples faced to gain rights in order to stay together legally in the US.
