Clearly consists of a series of second-hand prescription glasses, transformed through processes that obscure their view yet seek to unveil their specific insights. Shown in tandem with performance/installation Fieldwork, the objects construct a fragmented portrait of a character, at once familiar and inscrutable. Making physical the notion of accessing another’s perception, these altered personal artefacts deny any satisfaction of such curiosity. Lens cloths paired with each set, printed with drawings, photographs and research material, represent efforts to make sense of this imagined, inaccessible vision.
Fieldwork and Clearly were created for and first exhibited as part of Swing It Shake It Move It Make It (who do u think u r?) at GENERATORprojects, Dundee.
