Family Portraits

Family Portraits (excerpt), 2016, single channel video loop, 8:44min

A continuous video loop of family portraits, each family member has the same digitally grafted drag queen face. The drag faces blink, grin and groan but do not speak.

The stock imagery has been sourced by typing “family portrait” into google images and is therefore a sampling of our global conception of “family” – a white, heteronormative and nuclear ideal.
