Special Works School
With Bambitchell, 2018. HD video, 27 min.
Commissioned by Gallery TPW, Toronto.
Through this new body of work, Bambitchell asks: what is the sound, feel, and smell of surveillance? What does an aesthetic approach to surveillance render visible or, indeed, invisible? Framing surveillance as an aesthetic practice, “Special Works School” hones in on its psychic, material, and embodied dimensions, working from the positions of both surveillor and surveilled.
