Antidote for Venomous White Snakes

Image by Andrew J Pearson

"A powerful interactive multi projection audio visual experience" - Tracey Mc Irvine, Visual Arts Manager, Gasworks Arts Park

This multi projection audio visual installation reveals venomous terminology that proliferates throughout white supremacist patriarchy on same sex (male) ‘hook up’ apps.

Language suggesting that being ‘white’ is superior slops from the offensive to the absurd, revealing snakes consumed by conformist insecurities and judgments.

While initially disturbing, this work seeks to offer an antidote that enraptures with visions of a more inclusive and dignified space; where different is beautiful and celebrated.

This installation invites physical interaction with the projections. The language of ‘superiority’ will be projected on the floor, to be trampled on as an act of resistance.
