Blindside Exhibition 2007

Video work exhibited by Tara Gilbee and Andrew Goodman related to the collaborative project, Deluge. The small video and sound pieces were part of a series of works which explored concepts about the transformative nature of and metaphors associated with water. In their recent work both artists have explored the experience of the human body.

Drawing upon the writings of Deleuze and Bataille that advocate the immersion of the body in physical sensation, these projects explored the concept of ‘affect’, the direct physical connection between the viewer’s body and the ‘event’ that works to blur boundaries between the two. The work references science fiction, anime and Japanese horror films which frequently exploit an Animist view of the world. In this small work the viewer’s engagement with the work was intimate and voyeuristic.
