RESIDENCIES

End to End

24.09.2018 to 19.10.2018



Valerie Driscoll's interdisciplinary art practice incorporates sculpture, video, installation and performance. Often playing with notions of sex, death and the banal, Driscoll’s current work explores the relationship between the human body and the machine. 

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

During my residency I will explore the relationship between the body and internet ether and will involve dance and movement of the body, playing with and participating in popular culture and online environments. 

This project considers the conceptual overlapping of human body and machine. Playing with notions of the ‘precise’ machine and the ‘messy’ body, this new video work will irreverently question cybernetics and the perceived patriarchy of machines. Working with repetition, provocation and the exemplification of process, this work reflects on the banality of internet engagement. The performer will interact with the internet and using only movement, will mimic what she sees.
