Orange

Artist:

Daniele Constance and Jorge Serra

About This Project:

Orange is a striking and almost unmissable giant being – moving, living, day by day, viewed from within the confines of a two-bedroom apartment in Coolangatta. Striving to be an enigma in an increasingly restricted and familiar environment.

Drawing on performance, choreographic and photographic practices, Orange aims to capture the domestic duties, joys, sorrows, absurdities and small freedoms of our new normal lifestyle during the Covid-19 crisis. This photo and short film series follows a largely mundane routine, providing a glimpse into the private world of this individual, who in many ways, reflects all of us.

This work is a collaboration between performance maker Daniele Constance and photographer/videographer Jorge Serra as they share a living space together during isolation.

The Project Outcome:

Experience the joy and absurdty of Orange on Instagram stories, starting from Thu 14 May.
