ANTHONY CULLEN ART

People and Dogma

Video Installation (2020); The artist had already dealt with the damaging and controlling effects of certain institutions in other works. In this project he looked at select people’s relationship with Dogma and how there may be no visible institution involved, but how strong levels of both support, control and in some cases damage do exist. He researched different cult and communal practices to delve into areas such as; open relationships, instances of incarceration, self-incarceration, amateur psychology and control.

This project is a reflection on the frustrations, anxieties and concerns of the individual in an environment where there is an active search for belonging or something other than the social norms that they already live in.  HD, 4:24 min.
