Obscurity is the place to be visible. In this visually direct work, the question plaguing, directing and informing my current work is pulled into view. Meaning what? What does it mean to be exhibited? To be seen? To be counted? To be listed?
There is no answer offered in the work. Partly because depending on who is looking at it, the question appears differently. One of the thought provokers for What does it Mean to be Visible, was Dispossession by Judith Butler and AthenaAthanasiou in which they investigate and dig into the complexities and wider affects on identity, how this is formed and informed by political context. How environments and context eke into the very personal sensation of being seen.
