Disaster Series (2018)

7 min 15 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

“I hesitated for so long on how to behave my compassion ran dry
Ran out of town by my inability to react
It’s a heart split
And you don't know the half of it”

"To further the assertion that identity can never be fixed or stable, Disaster Series (2018) constantly disrupts itself. Produced for Under Your Skin You Look Divine curated by Dan Sanders and displayed at ‘Basement Adult Shop & Cruise Club’ (7-9pm Tuesday 13 Feb 2018, Auckland) DS offers a distinctively queer view of ‘intimacy’, preoccupied by the disorientation of self-image caused by heartbreak."
