Gabrielle Amodeo is a Wellington-based multi-media artist who is interested in the space between things and how they are represented. Her work often takes what is familiar and alters it, removing some elements and highlighting others. These acts test how meaning travels and unravels, considering what is lost and gained during transmission.
For Blind Carbon Copy: An Open Love Letter, Amodeo delves into the representation and signifiers of intimacy. Working autobiographically, this series of works addresses the placeholders used to acknowledge and commemorate romantic relationships, where poignancy sits alongside a certain inevitably inefficacy.
