Ex-i-bi shun-shun dis-play sis-tum-tum

Ex-i-bi shun-shun dis-play sis-tum-tum is a video work developed for the 2019 group exhibition The Scene is the Seen, curated by Rayleen Forester and Ray Harris.

The piece presents itself as an introductory source of information about the gallery space along with details about the exhibition on display, initially borrowing text from the publicity materials sent out about the exhibition. However, the piece quickly disintegrates, moving through a variety of modes and incorporating language from unrelated sources: online advertising, pop song lyrics and confessional poetry. The work is intended as an ambient, partly fictional inventory of the exhibition and its themes as well as the gallery space itself.
