Bill Balaskas
Bill Balaskas' videos and installations subject images and situations drawn from contemporary visual culture to a process of subversion. His work often employs the ideas of fragmentation (both literally and metaphorically) and irony to develop a playful schema in which the 'truth' of an image or situation is 'there', but it is never solid enough to decode with certainty. In many cases, it is the very act of the subject's deconstruction that can be perceived as subversive, or, alternatively, it could be the deconstruction's resulting view that engenders such a feeling. Accordingly, the audience can experience a perceptual indeterminacy that seeks to establish where subversion emanates from: is it from the artist's ideological disposition, or is it from the spectator's own interpretation of the subject as presented in front of his/her eyes?
