The concept of haunting is a rich and variegated space in the making and thinking of Brodie Kokkinos‘ artistic practice. If haunting occurs in the spaces between presence and absence, Kokkinos’ specific use of installation, performance, and photographic methods, articulates that threshold. Haunting is understood as both concept and method.
The forces, persuasions, and seductions of commercial visual languages are taken as material for Kokkinos’ photographic, video and installation works, strategically restaged and redistributed. Strategies such as digital animation, durational art film, and video installation are used to amplify and transform the culturally charged imagery from multiple in-ways.
The artist’s practice deals poetically with the undercurrents of imagery and their psychosensorial push and pull upon the embodied spectator. Works act as conjugates for the malevolent forces within image-making systems like advertising, film, cinema and even contemporary art. Kokkinos’ elaborate reconfigurations of act to intervene in their spectral powers, redirecting them as they are in play.
Opening Event: Saturday 27 May, 3 – 5pm.
