Corner Piece, 2022

Corner Piece is a two-channel video projection based on a series of real text message exchanges between the artist and her growing children (on the left) and her aging mother (on the right). Kerry is always in blue, pinging from side to side depending on who she is texting with. The artist’s “self” is endlessly shifting back and forth in her role as caregiver to her children on the one hand and to her mother on the other. Installed, the ubiquitous ‘ding’ disrupts and distracts similar to its intrusive quality in our daily lives. However flawed, text messaging is a way of paying attention to those you love and a mode of caring for their wellbeing.
