Genuine & Authentic is a new installation work inspired by my time in New York and London. It excavates themes of queer identity and invests the ways in which queer and non-normative narratives are accounted for within collective history and memory. Concerned with the opposition of public and private lives and questioning why authenticity and the power structures it creates are privileged.

Deep Space is a moving-image work based on footage from NASA and the International Space Station. Using common and mundane objects to recreate extraterrestrial views, Fuller seeks to position the viewer in a state of uncertainty. This confusion about whether the footage is of something vast or something tiny (or both) gestures to our relationship with deep space – it is something we can simultaneously know a great deal yet also nothing about.

Immobilised on the hood of a 1992 Toyota Corolla, with an ex-lover behind the wheel, driving in endless circles, the latest audio-visual work by Aotearoa based multidisciplinary artist Jordana Bragg “And Again” documents a monumental gesture in service of incapsulating the human condition. 

“And again, the sun rose on the next day
When your back is turned, the day does not turn away, always the same
Love is absolution, persecution, ejaculation, always the same”.
