dc.description Exhibition catalogue for 'The Black Box Sessions' exhibition, held at UTS Gallery from 31 May 2011 to 15 July 2011. en
dc.description.abstract The Black Box Sessions dispenses with the prop of the fourth wall, and literally places the performer and the viewer together into a single intimate and enclosed space. What happens there is experienced through CCTV, through the surveillance system that defines the unsleeping power of an anonymous state. Mutually digitally digested, the performer and the viewer are trapped in a proximity that plays upon the voyeurism and vulnerability of the audience member who only wants to watch, but finds themselves suddenly outnumbered. Within the relative safety of performance, the uncanny force of a partially deconstructed reality exposes itself. Pressed up against a peephole, the skull of the viewer becomes itself a black box. en
