Cindie Gottlieb-Cheung: Whisper Residency

Within her films, Cindie Gottlieb-Cheung scrutinizes the broader aesthetic relationship between object and gesture. Her work is drawn from her interest in the historical trajectories of the representation of women in lens-based media which is presented through sculptural interventions within her films.

By appropriating the choreographed forms of imagery that have been prevalent in cinema and popular culture, Cindie creates spaces or worlds, which continually fluctuate between the familiar and unfamiliar, and likewise, the awkward and the attractive. Through pastiche, the films attempt to expose their own constructed operations which identifies and separates the work from the very imagery it mimics. She is interested in the way in which representation, meaning and desire intertwines, creating gaps and links between our personal understanding of fiction and reality and also our fixed expectations of how narratives unfold.

During her residency at Chinese Arts Centre, Cindie will focus on accumulating visual research through the use of video and photography. Her investigations will function as the protagonist in a larger video installation exploring clichéd female allusions in the moving image.
