Autumn Knight: Sanity TV, 2018. Digital video, 89:05min
Sanity TV, is an ongoing performance series that investigates the flexible boundaries of identity, psyche, normalcy and reality through the format of a fictional talk show. The performance is improvisational in structure.The interviews unfold as responses to various prompts, then unravel toward something unrecognizable. The work uses irrationality as a way to make meaning in the contemporary situation. Power and relationships are negotiated through a constant restructuring of each moment. Laughter/occasional discomfort.
Rosa-Johan Uddoh: Performing Whitness, 2019. Digital Video, Episode 3, 05:14min
Performing Whitness (2019) is a series of three works inspired by the figure of Moira Stuart, the longest serving Black female broadcaster on the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). It is a parodic analysis of media and broadcasting services. The humoristic rhythm is excessive glamour. All three parts of the work are screened in the gallery while part 3 is also screened on EXILE TV.
