"The Rise and Fall"
Opening: Tuesday 17 March, 6-8pm
Dates: 17 March-3 April 2009
'The Rise and Fall' is a video work made up of photographic stills, depicting the artist rotating in a circle in mid air. The video is looped, the subject remains locked in an endless cycle, both trepidatious and exultant through each revolution.
Considering notions of the woman in the Australian landscape, 'The Rise and Fall' deals with ideas surrounding contemporary feminism and femininity, whilst investigating the relationships between gender, staging and performance.
