Focusing on the slippages between shared and personal experience, Brandon's practice explores ideas of intersubjective identity and the languages and performances of everyday life. Recording and re-contextualising quotidian materials and events through a variety of media, Brandon questions whether these experiences can ever be re-entered by an audience; and if so, what shifts may occur as a result of this process.
For Record, Brandon has approached journaling as a space to explore the intersection of art practice and everyday life and the slippages that may occur between private and public experiences. Inviting audiences into the seemingly private moments of the artists' everyday life, Record seeks to navigate the indeterminate space between staged and sincere experience and the potential for intimacy in a gallery environment.
