The film and other work for this show includes the newly made film Course, new bookwork Form and sculptural intervention Pin. Each work deals with spaces that are disquietingly empty of inhabitants. The libraries and classrooms are bare, the books unread, the seats unoccupied. The empty library becomes home to animated footstools; the empty classrooms are recorded as pamphlets of remembered lessons - accurate accounts of room geography that map changes in modes.These darkly minimal absences are leavened throughout by touches of humour.
Her works take place as repeated or paused events, contained within the depicted spaces. She draws attention to the thresholds and boundaries of these spaces – calling into question what is inside and what is outside. She demonstrates a darkly humorous concern with boredom as a paradoxical state in which the present can be questioned. Through the depiction of still moments, use of repetition and changes of pace she refocuses our attention on the ordinary.
