Stockholm Syndrome Collaborative Collages with Cameron Poole
Where has the potential for change gone? How does a body perform its way out of a definitional framework that is not only responsible for its very “construction” but seems to prescript every possible signifying and countersignifying move from a repertoire of possible permutations on a limited set of predetermined terms? (Massumi, Parables for the Virtual)
Cameron Poole has created digital assemblages from his engagement with the episode’s of Stockholm Syndrome as I released them over the first half of this year. They replay the films as simple shimmering tapestries and enliven my own understanding. Cameron’s collages act as lobby cards for those who feel emboldened enough to dive into the film’s vortex of lockdown to catch hold of a recurring form and resurface in non-bifurcated euphoritopia.
