London based U.S. artist SE Barnet works across film, performance, and installations to create intimate visual essays on everyday pursuits. In two exhibitions at FIVE YEARS, co-organized with Sally Morfill, she engages with archive materials from the early 20th c British movement Mass Observation. Relying on randomness and association towards uncovering an experiential picture of the world, her work with Mass Observation employs the archive materials towards re-appropriation and détournement. With essays by David Buuck and Esther Windsor.
