Too Good to Be True
Too Good to Be True explores off-camera realities through pointedly cinematic scenes. The materiality of the works is spare and severely controlled, and the formats almost confining. Although an installation and performances are included, the show is dominated by a series of photographed scenes that seem frozen and mute. By turning the focus of her art to the ceaseless pressure to look impossibly good, Too Good to Be True lays bare the consequences of our national obsession with personal beauty - its trappings, its excesses, its corrosive power and cultural pervasiveness.
