a fire circle for a public hearing (2019)

‘ Fire Circle for a Public Hearing seeks to consider how acts of visibility and invisibility serve to question the presence and absence of marginalised narratives in dominant histories, inviting visitors to assert their own understanding of possible pasts or futures.

haze (2018)

In short film Haze you meet an ambiguous figure. Disembodied from the self and alienated from the world. The body shifts between human and creature, conscious and unconscious, the obvious and uncanny. Wrapped in a second skin, like a layer, a membrane or a womb. The plastic disrupts the image, shields the flesh from the viewer and separates the figure from its surroundings.

enquiry desk (2017)

'Personal borders become evident in discomfort. By setting up situations that make this apparent, I want to create an awareness of personal space. I want to alter people's perception of their personal territories, while asking: "Who has access to this territory and who is in contol?"' - Catrine Andresen

At the Enquiry Desk the visitor is asked to evaluate an exhibition while being evaluated themselves. The interviews conducted are assumed to be market research for the exhibition. However, the intention of the dialogue between the interviewer and the visitor is to provoke discomfort; Andresen wants the visitor to feel evaluated and confronted as they are presented with both a hieracrchical situation, and their role within it.
