We intend to undertake a residency at GlogauAir, Berlin, to expand upon our current line of enquiry into the impact of popular culture and screen-media on identity construction and communication, through the development of a new series of live performances & multi-screen video installations.
Our current practice investigates ideas and constructs surrounding identity, interpersonal relationships, intimacy and female subjectivity, through the mediums of video, live performance and photography. We seek to continually develop our practice through regular art-research, participation in exhibitions, residencies, and workshops; and maintain a network of support through fortnightly critiques and engagement with Artist-Run Initiative culture, here in Brisbane.
