Video art “Loosener” by Karver Collective was featured in the West Projections Festival 2018, in West Footscray, Victoria.
This work depicts postmodern deconstruction as it questions the definition and functionality of the Body. This work intends to expose that the object of language and definition is irreducibly complex, and unstable, and primarily multivalent. This work applies deconstruction theory to the human body, where, devoid of explicit definition, the utility of the form is expanded to include heterodoxical actions. This video art responds directly to the theme non/FICTION as it fixates upon the hazy borders of communication, hermeneutics, and language as it questions set definitions and functionality, and re-imagines the utility of the Body.
Performance date: 10th and 11th August 2018
Performance location: Sims Supermarket, West Footscray, VIC.
