Dance, Video Production, Installation
Desirous is a personal and playful filmic and photographic exploration of the desire to break free from preconceived notions of identity and move beyond a current state of mind.
Private spaces are inhabited, physically and emotionally, existing within and beyond the boundary line of place. Idiosyncratic gesture is captured and moments of corporeal release are lived through dance. From direction to self-direction, uncertainty to confidence, a state of empowerment and connection to self and place is desirous.
Artist note: This video was the key component to my installation at Constance Gallery Artist Run Initiative (ARI) in July 2014. It was looped. There is no sound. This is a pretty dirty edit for a beginner, but I think it adds to the glunge element of the piece. I am pretty excited by the potential of some of the imagery so may revisit the footage to create another composition.
