Summerhall Online - Gather Town
Set in a landscape of social distancing, social media, WhatsApp and Zoom calls, iMelania is an audio-visual experience that takes place on your phone and desktop. Varjack-Lowry use Melania Trump as an avatar of an "acceptably" foreign woman, obscuring and questioning experiences of being foreign in post-Brexit Britain. With the overwhelming nature of the global digital landscape, how do we use social media to engage with current affairs and connect ? How do we use it to escape? A playful, dizzying, online exploration between a duo of dual heritage women investigating borders and belonging.
