Sub Rosa, 2017. Single channel video installation. Edited by Adam P. Kasper.
SUB ROSA by Nicola Collie & Chelsy Mitchell
Exhibiting from 17 May – 30 September 2018 at York Art Gallery, United Kingdom.
SUB ROSA has just been announced as 1 of 100 international contemporary works long-listed in the Aesthetica Art Prize, 2018. It will be published in the Aesthetica Anthology 2018. SUB ROSA is a 3 channel video installation created during her time in the Rabbit Island Residency program 2016.
Sub Rosa projects the viewer into a vast, hypnotic state of flux. Choreography in a world without gravity, where one weightless body glides through suspended luminous particles dancing in the water. Nicola Collie’s sinuous improvisations elicit a direct emotional and kinetic response to the environment while Chelsy Mitchell’s sensuous dream-like aesthetic inspires a feeling of contemporary nostalgia.
