Model Home

A video project. April 2017. Part of The Posers, a collaboration with Timber & Battery (Paul Hughes and Rohanne Udall).

Somewhere between estate agent, nervous tenant, television host and investigative journalist, a figure invites a camera to look through a home. Exposed by the tour, she tries to convince the viewer of the deliberateness, and desirability, of apparent inadequacies within both space and her presentation. Borrowing from the aesthetics and performances of mainstream reality TV, Model Home questions the relations of power and trust between performer, camera and audience.
