All That Ends Well was shot in the basement corridors of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; a building that once housed a military hospital owned by the British at the height of its colonial power. The location epitomizes an institution both specific and general. Such environments are loaded with connotations of ritualistic, repetitive and often pointless acts facilitated by self-contained institutions. The figure, deliberately stripped of specific identifiable traits and mostly obscured in darkness, is both a passive subject and active aggressor. The camera, intrusive and fixed, follows what is potentially an aimless journey of a simulated character, in a continuous looped descent.
