Interiors Series III

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

In these municipal interiors the furniture is arranged in authoritarian configurations. In one setting a table is positioned in confrontational opposition to the viewer, its curved sides creating a sense of being surrounded by a faceless authority. In another of these images a closed arrangement of chairs creates a tight, impenetrable circle, closed to the viewer. Each image is suggestive of control, reminiscent of the alienating authority often faced by the protagonists in the writings of Kafka. Details: Series of three works, entitled, ‘Chambers’ (1998) 122 cm x 183 cm duratran on lightbox, ‘The Exit’ (1998) 40 cm x 60 cm duratran on lightbox, ‘Aura of Crisis’ (1998) 122 cm x 152 cm colour c.type photographic print. Edition of three.
