Vernissage on Saturday, January 8, at 5 pm

At what point does space become fictional to the viewer and at what point does it become real? In Venus…I see blue, I play a construct-like character inspired by female heroines in virtual fighting video games. I also extract specific representational elements from popular imagery including streetwear, martial-arts movies and animation, to create a character that mixes cultural references and characteristics, in order to move them somewhere else, somewhere slightly different. I am interested in creating a visual language activated by the myths and narratives of female representations that explores and exposes the subjective in digitally created spaces. This installation explores the potential in inventing a fictional space and the questions arising out of these issues. – Lynne Marsh
