Natasha Caruana has been co-commissioned by HOUSE Biennial and Photoworks to create a new lens-based work. Timely Tale is set against a backdrop of love, desire and health in the age of Excess – the theme for this year’s festival.
Excess is explored in the artwork through the vehicle of the artist’s mother, Penny, and the audience will see the work in the setting of a ‘medical waiting room’.
To experience Penny’s story, viewers will be transported via the medical waiting room into her bedroom through a short film capturing: recuperation, finding the right outfit, storing medication and looking for the perfect online partner. The piece addresses the idea of choice and how, in the long run, too much choice can often lead to decision-making paralysis and its consequences.
