The Knot by Les666 [Opening Reception]
January 24, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Commission by SAW Video Media Art Centre for the opening of their new gallery The Knot in Arts Court. The Knot, as a concept, was interpreted and represented by different local media artists.
Single Channel, No Audio, HD 1250 x 920 (ad specs)
The Knot here, is a short conceptual performance video where friends were asked to brush, comb or touch their hair like in a hair advertisement. A very simple act and yet a very charged act depending on the perspective and experience. Contemplating daily routines and providing little context, the interpretation is left to the viewer and how they feel about what can appear to be a banal activity or symbol.
