Drawing from screen-based culture Clark Beaumont examines notions of identity, female subjectivity, intimacy and interpersonal relationships. Presented as a series of video interventions, She’ll Be Right explores these interests through re-enactment and repetition, reflecting upon the portrayal of personal and shared experience. Using the distinctive vernacular found in iconic Australian films She’ll Be Right exploits the cinematic depiction of everyday life. Employing the stereotypes of ‘aussie battler’ and ‘under dog’, Clark Beaumont consider the fluctuating states of existence, focusing particularly on doubt, confidence, failure and triumph.
This project is the first exhibition in Boxcopy’s Emerging Artist Program, supporting and mentoring emerging artists in the development of new works within a critical and dialogic context.
