Louisa Martin
The Lighthouse: Scenes 1 and 2

Thursday 12th June
Gallery 2, Horsebridge Art Centre Gallery

This short film makes up two scenes of a five series film that Martin is currently developing which explore the performance of identity, exploring the subjective affects of living through digital images, images that are used to simultaneously construct and conceal identity. Focusing on the sense of intimacy that is achieved online with the use of identity-masking, the videos feature a set of bizarre characters each whom represent a physiological state. Through the apparatus of performance such as costume, make-up and props new realities can be constructed which move between the real and the fantastic through invocation of performing the real.
