Holly Block: Flick & Cut (or Dolls) - Art Collector

Holly Block, Flick & Cut (or Dolls), 2017, single channel video, 5 minutes duration Courtesy of The Artist and Fox Galleries, Melbourne.

From an altered and very specific view of the world* Flick & Cut (or Dolls) highlights and critiques wider social and cultural behaviours and norms around sexuality, femininity, personal power and identity. By isolating actions from associated object, the performance amplifies the absurdity of these ritualised behaviours and investigates the cultural significance of both the object (hair) and the gestures that surround it. The work was developed via an extensive workshop process led by the artist, as director and choreographer, working closely with the participants to create this performance of a gendered body to expose the vulnerable, internalised performance bound up in the construction of ones identity.
