STATEMENT and (an) Archive of Yearning

New works by Susan Long and Lex Middleton

STATEMENT: Lex Middleton

MOVING IMAGE Approx: 7’40”
Voice: Belinda McClory
Using the text from a police report documenting a violent homophobic crime, STATEMENT re-presents the official facts deemed relative in describing the proceedings of a violent criminal act.
(Warning: this work may be distressing to some viewers)

an) Archive of Yearning: Susan Long

Found object, a single snapshot. At first sight it appears tied to the reality of its subject, but though a single entity, it may reveal an archive of recorded and imagined yearnings. Taking the archival approach and working with a photograph as an archaeological site, findings of yearning are discovered, expanded and presented to the viewer.
