Conversing with Tiresias (2018) is a site responsive video work that positions quotes from TS Eliot’s The Fire Sermon alongside recent accounts of sexual assault made against Harvey Weinstein. Depicting the artist as a prophetic clairvoyant, the performative method devised results in a discussion between two characters, as they read out a script that alludes to events that have taken place in the hotel room they are situated within. The read-through delivery of the script, the visible recording equipment and unedited green screen make-up in this film reveals the constructs pertaining to the film industry, both on and off screen.
