SAWTOOTH X BLINDSIDE
1 August - 9 September 2018
Curated by Ciara O’Meara
Amy Dellar, The Huxleys, Gianna Mazzeo
The video works that make up this compilation were chosen on the basis of their uneasy, outlandish, and dreamlike characteristics. Dellar’s Miss Cancer and Mazzeo’s Miss Pisces appear to encapsulate notions of the surreal, paying homage to the likes of David Lynch and Brian De Palma. The Huxley’s Dark Side of the Rainbow exposes and bombards the viewer with a succession of unpredictable, nonsensical imagery. The overall composition of the three works reflect the structure of the subconscious as ‘something’ we view without our control and cannot fully comprehend.
All videos in this project were displayed in the Portal Space at Sawtooth ARI in Launceston, Tasmania in the last 12 months.
