Abstract (English)

"HIGH KICKS INTO THE LIGHT FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER is a new video installation by Vancouver-based artist Elizabeth Milton that investigates the relationship between glamour, affect, and the longing for transcendental experience.

Composed of a series of immersive projections that explore performative ritual and material play, the work revolves around a procession of participants meditating under the hot glow of a spotlight. Drenched in identical heavy make-up and lacquered in artificial sweat and tears, a series of ‘women’—disembodied faces displaying exaggerated markers of high femininity—form a fevered chorus-line for the camera. Melting under the heat, the performers’ make-up is a tenuous composition, eventually smeared away in a gesture of (choreographed) self-effacement." -- Publisher's website.
