The Projectionist brings together painting, video, performance, and objects from the historical archive of The Reach, to explore cinematic histories, settler narratives, gender roles, and museum collections as sites of contested value and values, as well as the role played by museum artifacts—and objects in general—in the construction of identities.
The Projectionist includes a performance, titled Objects Speak, which is the result of a collaboration between actor Lynn Karey-Mckenna and the artist. Objects Speak was performed weekly during the course of the exhibition.
