A Painted Show Thing (2022-2024)

L to R: Ettie, Carrie, Florine
single channel video loops, colour, silent.

Developed from the Apparition photographic series these videos continue research into pre-cinematic spectacle, using coloured cellophane as a way of seeing the everyday anew and references the cellophane theatre set designs of Modernist, but distinctly proto-feminist, American theatre designer, painter and poet, Florine Stettheimer. Named after the Stettheimer sisters and the morphic qualities of the performances, the artists have disguised themselves to create grotesque portrait silhouettes based on illusionistic shadow devices.
