My practice has a grotesquely nostalgic presence, having this Disney-like depiction of innocence allows more disturbing elements such as withdrawal and isolation to be amplified.
“The sculptural form functioning as an "in-between", a meeting point connecting the real world to a world of fantasy and fairytale. Kitsch dressing tables, luridly-colourful carts and a towering lighthouse contain the films, as the candy cottage that conceals the oven. Utilising manifestly low-tech means as employed for home videos, Gould wields the camera in a provocative, flirtatious, voyeuristic manner. Her work is highly-stylised, intelligent, disturbing and yet queasily entertaining. The worlds that Gould constructs, usually via a form of nonlinear narrative and typically fuse personal memories within a larger historical compass derived from fairytales, folklore and adult fantasy.”
