'Inside // Out' opens on OneWALL this FRI 6pm July 04.
A collaborative project for Jodie Watt and Veronique Sirianni, ‘Inside // Out’ reveals the pair’s take on the world through a polaroid camera.
Jodie presents a journey into the overlooked: pointing out and holding up high the small pleasures and details of her outside world.
While Veronique turns the lens inwards.
She took the time to sit with, ahh, me and chat about her/ my up coming show.
V1 (me): So, Veronique. I hear you are exhibiting this Friday up on OneWALL at MARS on theGRID. Can you tell us a little bit about it?
V2 (also me): Why yes Veronique, I sure can. It’s a series of polaroids I’ve taken over the past two years of everyday things in my life.
V1: So, like instagram on a wall?
V2 (still me): No, not at all. And yes, I guess. I use the polaroid to take photos of things that are special to me. One-off things. So while it’s over two years, there’s less than 40 in total.
V1: So why not just put up one polaroid of your instagram user name so people can just look at all this online?
V2: Well with instagram, you can’t physically print them out and hold the pictures. People don’t have to be interested in my life, I’m just showing an insight into what a life looks like when you don’t have the responsibility of counting ‘likes’ online.
I want the viewers to come up with their own idea of what my life is like. The way I see it though is, it’s all about judgement. Judging a book by it’s cover or in my case, a photo by it’s content.
Inside // Out opens this FRI 04 July 6PM
