Throwing Off the Hump

Ali McCann

Side Gallery
8 Apr 2017–29 Apr 2017
Opening 6.00pm 7 Apr 2017

Deriving its title from a labour-efficient potting technique, Throwing Off the Hump is a multi-channel video installation that ruminates on the Sisyphean burden of memory. Using looped cuts of found Super-8 footage salvaged from a technical college in the artist’s hometown, the works serve as an unburdening of grief through repetitive labour, such that the labour and the unburdening become the same act.
