For a long time I tried to make myself believe that life was no more than dealing with a series of targets. Targets of opportunity… I have a recurring dream. I’m walking, alone, unarmed. The streets are crowded with living shadows. I know they’re all around me but I can’t seem to catch them. I feel afraid. Perhaps the real fear is that one night I will catch them.
— The Equalizer, (Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim, 1985)
Target Practice explores the territories between disciplines of photography, video and spatial practice. It combines projected video of found and recorded footage with sculptural forms, referencing shadow-play and the photogram. The project also draws from research into fibre arts, interior design and craft-making including my own jewellery practice. Target Practice examines a 1980s fictional narrative through contemporary perspectives. The exhibition is part of an ongoing project that creates intersections between geometric abstraction, structure, scale and space.
