Velvet Crease

Deirdre Logue

2012, 02:23 minutes, colour


The Velvet Crease takes place over three large screens representing the id, ego and superego. Each channel is spinning a revision of Freuds psychic apparatus by placing, front and centre, not the artist’s genital anxieties and castrated woes, but rather a refractive and empowered disco portrait of her mastery.
This video is also a large projection performance with drummer Eleanor King, an interdisciplinary artist and musician with band Wet Denim. Her artistic practice in its various forms addresses issues of excess, technological obsolescence and environmental degradation.

Three-channel video installation or as a single channel video.
