Marisa Georgiou: Watch Before Going to Sleep

7 – 30 April 2017

Watch Before Going To Sleep is a video installation by Brisbane-based artist Marisa Georgiou. In altering the editing process of digital landscape photography, Georgiou examines the way we surround ourselves with aestheticised, contrived and mediated versions of ‘nature’ in order to feel grounded and connected. In doing so, she draws connections between mythologised notions of environmental authenticity and Western expectations of the sublime landscape, whilst asking whether the manufactured aspect of spiritual experience in the online environment has bearing on its legitimacy.


 

Marisa Georgiou is an inter-disciplinary artist, critical writer, and student of embodied performance strategies, interested in atmospheric sensation and our relationship to ‘nature’ in connection to wider feminist/postcolonial discourses. Marisa completed her Bachelor of Fine Art (Hons) in 2015, where she researched the potentials of an ethical visual approach to Landscape, in video and installation mediums. In 2016 she presented work for In-residence ARI, This Is Not Art festival and Boxcopy’s ARI in residence program, and appeared on panels for LEVEL ari and Critical Animals Creative Research Symposium.
