About the Artwork
In Untitled Ceiling Projection (2018), a woman smashes colourful lightbulbs. Filmed from beneath a clear table, the smashed bulbs become a kaleidoscope of colour. The title as well as the placement above the viewer’s head allude to the idea of smashing the proverbial glass ceiling, while the Edison bulbs represent an antiquated invention—once a scientific breakthrough, but that is now becoming obsolete as more energy efficient options become available.
Untitled Ceiling Projection is on display July, September, November 2023, January, March and May 2024.
