Let's go through this again

Crucial bonds within the family system can be both repressive and comforting, intimate family scenes, meeting and converging, teetering on the dysfunctional; such moments are threaded throughout the piece.

Presenting a sense of domestic co-dependency, the work aims to pragmatically capture the complexities and subtleties of interpersonal relationships.  A construction of autobiographical material presented as a life sized projection and sound installation; exploring how audio, composition and performance can be harnessed to allow insight into the private as an immersive experience.

  • By experimenting with the role of mutual physical movement through mimicry I question the status of the self that inevitably penetrates all family dynamics.  Through carefully staged re-enactments I flesh out the ambivalent nature of the family unit, both intimate yet restrictive.

    Through performance, moving image and sound I aim to describe the primary maternal relationship, exploring ideas of identity, free-will and memory, using psychoanalysis as a platform to scrutinise the formative parent/child relationship.
