Daniel Connell: Obsolete - Art Collector

Daniel Connell, 'Obsolete' (film still) 2013, HD Video - 6:30mins looped, edition of 5. Courtesy: the artist and Brenda May Gallery, Sydney

Daniel Connell tailored a dress made from polyvinyl acetate to create his video piece ‘Obsolete’. This material, whilst being a synthetic material, a product of the contemporary age, possesses none of the longevity you’d expect –as rain falls, the material dissolves against the skin of the protagonist as she meanders through a landscape of dense undergrowth. In doing so, a gesture is staged in recourse to a set of modern values where the object is not always seen for it’s immediate worth.
