ART WORKS > Video and Performance
Selected videos, stills, and documented actions dealing with maintenance and quotidian details.
Woman must write her self: must write about women and bring women to writing, from which they have been driven away as violently as from their bodies - for the same reasons, by the same law, with the same fatal goal. Woman must put herself into the text - as into the world and into history - by her own movement. - Hélène Cixous, “The Laugh of the Medusa”
Micro films and videos reflecting a diverse range of themes from ‘the personal is political,’ impermanence, memory, longing and loss. The instability of our prevailing political climate and the ensuing anxiety is a subtext in much of the recent work.
Documented actions involving community, orchestrated and spontaneous. For more, visit my instagram page: mahackett
Recent experimental documentary and micro-cinema focusing on conversations with contemporary female artists and those involved with cultural spaces in the South and beyond. The videos are an extension of my practice as an artist and came about while re-evaluating my relationship to the studio as the main site of production.
