London Group Open Exhibition, Ingram Purchase Prize
Woking, The Lightbox, Not all contemporary art is rubbish! The Ingram Collection, 2 February – 10 April 2016
The artist says of her work that she is ‘pursuing the dissolution of art and life. Exploring wider more theoretical concerns of art making, questioning the limitations of a representational practice, how artist generate content and where content resides within art works and questioning the intentionality of art practice. This piece of work uses the guise of a Home Porn Movie to explore deeper conceptual notions within art making and practice. I feel the work can be interpreted in many ways, which was my intention. However my specific goal for this piece of work was to pair and question two seemingly different concepts/surroundings by blurring the boundaries between art and life. I attempted to use a domestic moment to explore wider more theoretical concerns regarding art making and practice, such as the idea of generating content within art works. The Porn film doesn’t actually achieve “it’s goal”, it stays in a repeated no mans land. It attempts to become a representation of a past Porn film, but doesn’t achieve “its intended outcome”. By never achieving “its goal”, can it pose questions on where content lies within a work? Does the work generate it’s own content by not achieving its goal? Where does the content and work lie?’.
