Sarah Rose and Scott Rogers

Oasen
11 May – 8 June, 2013

 

For their project in the Mezzanine, Sarah Rose and Scott Rogers will present a new single-channel video. The work, entitled Oasen, wanders through a cluttered labyrinthine space, encountering unexpected combinations of images and objects. A voiceover narrative reviews the footage, speculating on the fictions and realities layering the space. The atmosphere is dreamlike and claustrophobic. Concerned with re-directing assumptions about its location, Oasen edges the limits of systems and explores the temptation to deliberately misunderstand meaning and reference.
