New video work in the make: ART EDUCATION (WHERE ARE MY CHILDREN?)

Zoe is currently working on a new video work to be presented online at the beginning of next year. The work will focus on art and education. Drawing from her work as teacher, the video will highlight aspects of primary art education, the child and the adult in the classroom situation, their roles reversed. The video uses Zoe’s recognizable performance monologue aesthetic and will be a follow up to some of the ideas expressed in her last video work ‘STUDIO VS LAB’.
