Portrait #5 is dedicated to Scottish artist Douglas Gordon, in whose studio the video was shot with two iPhones simultaneously. Composed of two sequences that portray the artist's hands in space, juxtaposed but synchronized, the video installation creates a choreographic dialogue.

Gordon’s hands reach over to one another, bridging the fragmented body, mostly corresponding in an uncontrolled dialogue with each other, sometimes clapping in the air or hitting the studio floor. The sound emphasises the performance in a disturbing manner.
