Life Support System
Life Support System explores the concept of the father as anti-hero. It tells the story of a serial philanderer who had six children to four women, and constitutes a mode of analytic sense-making on the artist’s part, and to an extent, his wider family.
This body of work is a search for identity, a personal journey which attempts to shed light on a father’s unexplained absences (both physical and emotional) through the gradual piecing together of a plausible narrative recreating key moments in his life.
Incomplete truths, embellishment, and artful deceit are all implicated in an exploration of the power of family stories, and how children don’t have to believe everything they’re told.
