Glare (2009)

 

Multi-channel video installation. 

 

Kim Coleman and Jenny Hogarth. 

Commissioned by S1 ArtSpace, Sheffield, the combined elements that construct this five-channel video installation suggest the set of a fashion shoot. Human and other bodies are subjected to the gaze of the camera, each appearing to ‘perform’ in a feedback loop of directed scrutiny and resopnse. Attention is drawn to supporting props, with a disruption of the usual hierarchies that exist between subject, camera and backdrop.
