Endec is a site-specific installation and photographic series which explores notions of control and freedom through our relationship with technology.
In the main gallery space a new series of photographic prints featuring a female figure partially submerged, yet fully coated in a marbled, milky-white fluid. Swirls of black dye ripple around her and her beautifully captivating form simultaneously controls and is controlled by the motion of the pool. This symbiosis of struggle and accord between the figure and the liquid allows the creative process to shape the unexpected outcome of each ‘canvas’. Overlaid text on one image highlights this contemporary, sociotechnical conundrum whereby control is an illusion, and illusion is control. Instances of both struggle and unison are captured, begging the elevated question of the individual’s autonomy in relation to advancing technology.
Endec marks the first installment of a two-part exhibition with an eponymously titled short film deriving inspiration from the installation and photographic series to follow.
