Some Words and Images

This series displays image and text to confound. Obscure non-sensical pairings are produced as preposterous greeting cards to comment on meaning and meaninglessness.

Samantha J Heriz’ practice seeks to express the overlooked in our fast paced society, highlighting quiet internal states of mind, meaning and meaninglessness, through duration and obscurity. Heriz’ practice is diverse, but recent works have developed through durational video and poetic text as subtitles. Samantha utilises training in Butoh, meditation, performance and linguistics as the basis for her work. She has recently completed her Masters of Fine Art at RMIT, Melbourne.
