FSU Art MFA ’16 Brittany M. Watkins exhibits new, video-performance work in Art Fair Philippines. Her work is included in a four-person display titled “Point of Selection” curated by Kelli Maeshiro. On view at Mono8 Gallery in Manilla, May 6 – 15, 2021.
Watkins practice examines contemporary society through a lens of psycho-analysis as she moves between a range of media. From immersive installation to hyper edited video-performances, her process mirrors the push and pull between interiority and public life, linking larger social issues to the fragility of the human psyche. Her distortion of self simultaneously acknowledges and subverts the act of posturing for social status in response to the invasion of consumer culture on sub-consious mind.
Additionally, Watkins is scheduled to exhibit August 31- September 23, 2021, in a three-person show at Mono8 Gallery, also curated by Maeshiro. This exhibit features work by Gabrielle Lockwood Estrin of Glasgow, Scotland, and Carina Santos of UK & Manilla, Philippines.
