For this residency, we plan to extend upon our research into the impact of screen-based languages, especially popular film & TV, on identity & how we relate to one another by creating live performances & videos that operate at the intersection of performativity & authenticity. We will push our performance practice to include more traditional theatrical & cinematic elements, in order to access the experiential & affective qualities that popular culture & screen-media employ. We will use the program’s focus on critical reflection to facilitate fruitful discussion & exploration of the changing nature & relevance of time-based artforms, such as video & performance, to better situate our practice within the shifting landscape of Contemporary Art & inspire new artistic lines of enquiry.
Our current practice investigates ideas & constructs surrounding identity, interpersonal relationships, intimacy & female subjectivity, through the mediums of video, live performance & photography. We seek to continually develop our practice through regular art-research, participation in exhibitions, residencies, & workshops; and maintain a network of support through fortnightly critiques & engagement with Artist-Run Initiative culture, here in Brisbane.
