RHEA STORR: THE IMAGE THAT SPITS, THE EYE THAT ACCUMULATES
Rhea Storr is an artist filmmaker who explores the representation of Black and mixed-race cultures. Masquerade as a site of protest or subversion is an ongoing theme in her work. So too, is the effect of place or space on cultural representation. On occasion she draws on her own rural upbringing and British Bahamian heritage.
In this film, a mixed race body explores a Norfolk landscape whose future is uncertain due to coastal erosion. The physical erosion of the landscape mirrors the now obsolete expired Kodachrome film once hailed as the new archival film for its vibrant colours but no longer able to be processed.
