HD video, 2012.

A maximalist video portrait featuring Regrette Etcetera on the relationship between identity, performance, architecture, economics and culture. The artist would like to thank Regrette Etcetera for her time, energy and honesty in participating in this interview.

This work was first shown as part of the solo exhibition "Containers of a Liquid Reality," at Firstdraft Gallery, Sydney. "Containers of a Liquid Reality" documents the performance practices of participating individuals through the creation of interview-based documentaries. The work develops a dialogue about capitalist enclosure of physical space and about the way in which human bodies are treated within a capitalist system of economics. Through a discussion of their performance practices, the interviewees provide insights into the imaginative ways in which they redefine and reclaim their physicality. In addition to the video portraits, the exhibition features an architectural inversion that utilizes engineering principles first used in the creation of Gothic cathedrals. The exhibition as a whole explores the link between ideology and architecture.
