Exhibition Launch: 6pm Friday, 7 October 2014
Foyer Space: Jenna Pippett, Familiar
Jenna Pippett’s practice manifests itself in looking into a personal past using family memorabilia, specifically on her mothers side. Responding to items, the work created offers visual links to engaging with a personal history. Altering and playing with memories, has led her to create new and interchangeable ways of viewing these past events.
Familiar explores an interest in small moments of physical interaction between family members. Sourced from film, the work cuts from the original footage to the recreated scenes of her own. Evoking a sense of closeness but also absurdity: taking this sweet, simple action out of the context of a home movie, distilling and replicating the moment.
