Leave (Get Out) | Erin Groenenboom
'Leave (Get Out)' is a selection of new work that investigates how the body can process emotions in ways which the heart or mind cannot. Groenenboom’s performance and audiovisual installations reflect submission to the indulgence and pathos associated with heartbreak.
Erin Groenenboom is a Brisbane based artist working with video, performance and installation. She completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Arts) (Honours) at Queensland University of Technology in 2013, and has exhibited and studied both locally and internationally. Groenenboom’s practice is based on an investigation of introspective process and ritual in contemporary visual art, and how these foundations can evoke contemplative and immersive spaces. Her intimate installations explore self and spirituality through portraits and recreations of her experiences, in which she invites the audience to both view and participate.
