Brief Release, 2018
single-channel video projection, artist book
Exhibited as part of Queensland College of Art 2018 Graduate Showcase, Brisbane, Australia
Drawing on a large archive of videos taken of myself in the privacy of my homes I have produced a silent film accompanied by a book. Initially filmed for my eyes only, these private moments are now out in the open. I reference surrealism, yet, I reject its traditional male gaze. I offer the viewer pictures and patterns – just enough to suggest what comes next – but I refuse to give up control.
