MAY SPACE is proud to present a new video work and photographic series by Tania Lou Smith for her fourth solo exhibition.
Untitled (pusher) 2019
Pusher is a short, tragicomic video work. A harried woman in a bright red dress and stilettos bounds across a stadium pushing an empty stroller. The reason for her sense of urgency is unclear. Pusher is a wry take on parenting, anxiety, navigating public space and all of these things mixed together.
Untitled (pram variations) 2020
Bend. Lug. Heave. Pull. Flick. Adjust. Stretch. Squeeze. Slither. Untitled (pram variations) is a musical score. A set of scales practiced on an uncooperative instrument. A steel and canvas extension of the familial body. Poking, catching, jarring and pinching. This new series of photographic works is a playful response to the physicality of caring.
