A conflagration of inherit sexism, void vanity, hunger to bona fide human interaction all whilst displayed through a series of angsty in aesthetic, "Tumblr" screensavers. "Yours the face" draws upon a two-dimensional facade, Liz Arday reveals the third-dimension the work has to offer.
This is the story of Emmy, an American Fashion model and Peter an Australian photographer and their search for the perfect photograph, lost in translation by their own inability to see the bigger picture.
Staged as a duologue with an individual voice, I found it all too exciting to see new Australian talent; Daniela Haddad emerge into the foreground. Although raw in experience, Haddad carried us through the struggles of living in a material world focalised on the physicality, the flaming desire to connect in a disconnected world and not telling your nana what great sex you had last night.
Have to be honest, without Liz Arday's direction the image would alter. I'd expect this …
A challenge to the whirlwind obscurities of the Australian legal system and how far one will go to seek forever Asylum.
I had the brilliant opportunity to endure the journey’s of five everyday Australian’s road to moralistic success through Ruth Fingret’s new work ‘Asylum.’ This work deals with the issues of disconnection, miscommunication, dishonesty and how whilst battling these issues all people just want to protect themselves and what’s important to them. The stylistic edgy, clean cut, fast-pace approach to these stories was juxtaposing, but intoxicatingly empathising to building these characters blackout by blackout.
The space of Comber Street studios (Paddington, Sydney) further inspires the sterile conditions endured through the highs and lows of the multilayered plot. Combining this hostility with the intimate performance space, intensified the silent aggression of each scene. By somehow still achieving quite comical moments through the directional work of Richard Hilliar.
It’s 2018. By now I thought we’d have flying cars.
In all seriousness though, 2018 has been great thanks to you lot. I have had so many amazing opportunities to work with Australian and international fashion companies, went to MBFWA for the second year in a row (getting featured in Elle, Vogue AU and ASOS online!!!), featured in three print fashion magazines (being on the cover of one!) and have gotten to work with some of the most amazing photographers Australia has to offer. I’ve loved this year and I love you guys for loving my quirky, weird outfits and staying around for more. Endless love and have a good 2018.
