Ashlee Laing Night Time is for the Boy Who Can FlyOpening: Tuesday 3 July, 6-8pm Dates: 3-21 July 2007
‘Night Time is for the Boy Who Can Fly’, is an installation incorporating video projection. In the darkened gallery space sit three handcrafted wooden hot tubs filled with water and a fine film of sump oil. Video footage is projected onto the liquid surface.
This exhibition explores a particular queer space created by consumerism that exists the world over. The subjects simulate notions of entrapment, limited expression, empowerment and communication within psychological/physical space. Night Time is for the Boy Who Can Fly involves the audience in a “world” of secrecy and shows us a cultural duality that exists with in the shadows of the mainstream ideology.
