Tania Smith, 'Untitled (domestic gestures)'

14 May to 9 June

Brenda May Gallery

» Exhibition Catalogue

The videos that comprise the 'Untitled (domestic gestures)' series show absurd moments of escape. Like the slapstick of Buster Keaton, a woman is trapped in a loop of pleasure and anxiety. The videos are an archive of absurd gestures - repetitious, futile, joyous, and mischievous. They are intended to be humorous, and have a slapstick quality to them, referencing the humanism of the heroes of the silent era. Everyday objects become absurd props in a dance of entrapment and liberation.
