Victoria Trinder and Necole Schmitz come together to create a mysterious milieu designed to engage all of your senses. Visitors are invited to peep, creep, crawl, touch and uncover the fantastical world created by the artists. Playing the part of both voyeur and object of inspection, observers can journey through the artists’ public and private spaces of drawers, dens, whispers, video, and song.
Trinder appropriates the voyeuristic propensities of new technologies of looking such as CCTV and video diaries and encourages the viewer to participate in this sometimes transgressive activity. Schmitz uses the multi-sensory experience of the organic spaces of seemingly animal-made dens to lure in onlookers with the feral smell of promises, confession, revelation and exposure.
These works explore the notion of being in and interacting with an environment and the heightened sensory experience of the unfamiliar space of the interior/dreamlike/animalistic realities of this fictitious world. These places are both organic and manmade encouraging the reader to surrender to the urge to sneak a peek before the tables are turned and they are the one being scrutinised, confronted, and revealed.
