Hazel Brill uses video, sound, animation, text, sculpture and installation to stage narrative videos that merge disparate contexts, oscillating between fiction, fantasy and the everyday. Digressive narratives replicate structures of processing a surplus of visual information directed by an absurd compression of associations. Hazel looks at the role of storytelling in popular culture with direct reference to techniques for seduction in productions of desire. Through the lens of theatricality and melodrama Hazel looks at the tension between internal agency and external controls.
