Coming up at 18m Galerie is another screening of our 13min experimental road film ‘Exit’ with performances from my book ‘The Peep Show’.

“Featuring performed, recorded and visualised extracts from a new novel by Siouxzi Mernagh, ‘The Peep Show’, followed by a screening of her experimental road film ‘Exit’.

‘Exit the peep show’ synthesises the latest film and literary work of Siouxzi Mernagh, an Australian writer/ artist based in Berlin. Her work concerns the tensions between desire and jouissance; female sexual identity; and moments of the synchronicity of memory with the present (especially within spaces filled with mystery such as hotel rooms and isolated roads).

Siouxzi will present live and recorded extracts from her latest novel, accompanied by video projections inspired by the visual symbolism within Georges Bataille’s ‘Story of the Eye’. Following this, her 13 minute film ‘Exit’ will screen. The film, shown in a quadrant split screen, was shot in far western NSW, Australia, on remote roads and in a crumbling outback hotel. Through stills and video, a cyclical love story of two female hitchhikers and a mysterious driver is told. Far from home and knowing nothing of each other’s lives, the hitchhikers find a connection with each other through inexplicably shared memories.”
