ISOyoh aka Heather Horrocks & Karenne Ann
The exhibition titled ‘Effacement’ is about identity. Masks can change everything. Photographic images by Karenne Anne loom from the walls and distort the identity of the maker, Heather Horrocks, who wears them. Redundant VHS tape that once held stories is manipulated with a crochet hook to tell new ones – about the war on a virus, the war on climate change and the war on women.
Video tape leaks into and around the recreated sitting room belonging to the Lindsay family of artists from Creswick, disturbing its tranquillity. This Art Gallery of Ballarat exhibition is presented as part of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale 2023.
ISOyoh invited Erin to take photographs of the collaborative team.
