Canada, 2016, 10 min.
In four explosive vignettes, Bombshell challenges the cinematic trope of the unflinching walk, revealing the complex systems of gendered signification and role play in western media and representation.
In my art films, I examine notions of "self" through the lens of gender, bringing the cultural tropes of woman into focus and into question. Filmed unaccompanied in the Canadian landscape, absurd yet insightful performative acts become entangled in nuanced and complex narratives in single and multi-channel video works that make reference to art history, mythology and popular culture. Revealing what lies beneath the surface of femininity, my work toys with a conclusion that is problematic, comi-tragic, and most essentially, human.
