Unfamiliar to Us
What does ‘family’ mean, particularly if you’re queer? In this immersive video installation, visual artist Yorgos Petrou and performance artist Victor Esses explore their desire to have children, with all the memories, experiences and fears that arise from that.
Beautifully intimate, full of gentle humour and tender moments, Unfamiliar to Us is a stripped-back autobiographical piece about being queer, wanting children and, ultimately, the human need to create a legacy.
Shot in one continuous take, the film of the performance crosses the lines of live art, theatre, film and performance art. The installation is made up of multiple screens and objects so you can choose the angle you watch from – the eyes, the feet, the interior of the home.
Screen times. weekdays: 11:00, 12:10, 13:20, 14:30, 15:40
