Brenda L Burmeister is a reluctant conceptual artist, devout experimental film/video maker, but above all, an avid metaphor maker.–
Her film, video, and installation work draws parallels between personal insights and universal experience, between a simple action and a complicated truth, and between herself and the audience.
The work portrays the delicate, albeit common, moments of fissures within the family unit, portrayed with uncommon vulnerability and unflinching resolve often with a performative aspect. The work elicits a broader conversation around the themes of intimacy though exposure, identity within the family and the role of technology in personal relationships.
