Megan Rooney

Tilia americana

Commission

2014

http://tiliaamericana.otdac.org

For her artwork commission, Megan Rooney has created Tilia americana, a set of five sequential, multi-framed videos with an accompanying narrated text. The videos incorporate elements of drawing, sculpture and performance, portraying women obscured by water-coloured pillow cases in different suburban situations. The audio track accompanying the videos is a voiceover of the artist reading a fractured and dreamlike prose poem.
