Annette Foster draws on the imagery of fairy tales, Victorian representation and fortune telling. Her work is theatrical, intimate and unsettling, exploring the hidden tensions of social interaction. Costumes are used to create characters that suggest particular archetypes, values or emotional states. The performing character, often exotic in appearance, acts as a channel for the revelation of secrets and memories. In Destiny, a one-on-one performance, the artist delves into the history of hysteria, sexuality and intimate interactions. Destiny muses about the swoon and the lives of the hysteric women in the black and white photographic iconography of Salpêtrière asylum. A collaboration with costume designer Nadia Malik and sculptor Ottis Sturmey.
