You Can See Me But I Can’t See You
Kristen Coleman is an emerging Adelaide based artist whose video installation practice considers cinema as an aesthetic object. Using appropriated film sequences, much of Coleman’s work explores the reception and experience of personal affect that is somehow tethered to the cinematic image.
In You Can See Me But I Can’t See You, sampled from Wim Wenders’ Paris Texas, she examines the traditionally centered and distanced spectator position. The work challenges and reverses the idea of cinematic voyeurism, an act that is inherent to the medium itself.
Coleman is a graduate from the University of South Australia’s School of Art, Architecture and Design (Bachelor of Visual Arts), and Adelaide Central School of Art (Bachelor of Visual Arts Honours).
