Suspect Installation 2016
10 Dec 2016 : Articulate Project Space, Sydney, Australia
Suspect was a video installation made and exhibited in the basement of Articulate. The event was the annual end of year group exhibition, this year titled Articulate Turns Six: What Next?. The image for Suspect was found in adetective novel where a naked black man is discovered by flashlight in a basement surrounded by shoes. For this work I refelect on The Holocaust and other atrocities, whether this character is the victim or the perpetrator discovered remains indeterminate. The naked performer in the image is surrounded by a circle of shoes which extend in real space as real shoes onto the floor in front oif him. He continually gulps and blinks, in guilt or in fearful apprehension.
