Over the edge
My photographic practice embraces the performative act in order to highlight the discourse between a potentially time-based photography and a privileged notion of event. The utilizing of performative strategies within my photography sees the photographic record of an event and the event itself form a creative dialogue. Subsequently the resulting performative photograph encourages the viewer to invent meaning resulting from a blurring of fact and fiction. Instead of an objective document, we create a vague and uncertain document. One that is best approached from a subjective perspective.
Combining this strategy with that of repetition we see the protagonist suspended within space as he translates his unbridled demeanor into absurd actions; actions that result in an ambiguous record, generating the photograph as a gravity defying ‘floating’ signifier.
