Pouf! is one in a series of four video installations by Auckland artist Teva Chonon.
‘This work embraces the mundane, as it forms itself through a repetitive action. At the same time the video uncovers a seductive quality that draws the viewer into this surrealistic environment. A certain playfulness is established in these oppositions- against the structure of the video picture. A conflicting sense of enchantment and disenchantment with reality is surfacing.’
Teva Chonon, 2008
