An exhibition by Katy B Plummer
This video installation project digs into ancestral whiteness, unravelling the spiritual and political implications of the artist’s (North American) settler colonist heritage. It aims to unearth and lay bare the cultural amnesia and ravenous spiritual vacuum at whiteness' heart. The video traces the journey of the Witch, in 17th century Puritan clothes with stilts on her hands and feet, so she moves like a four-legged beast.
