"The idea of the incomplete pose, as discussed by Mike Kelley in relation to different approaches to drag, has provided a critical means to approach the relationship between desiring and being. Negotiating boundaries is a constant endeavour – between appropriate and inappropriate types of performance and appropriation, performance and documentation, tragedy and comedy, success and failure, art and life. Installation forms a site where it can be difficult to tell where the performance begins and ends, and the objects and moving images within are intended to operate as both artefacts of performance and performing in their own right." - LH
