Isolated Canvas

/ 3 mins 42
Made and produced during the peak of the COVID-19 lockdown, Isolated Canvas was originally a public exhibition that evolved into a visual media piece due to social isolation restrictions.

This experimental film is themed around the idea of injecting queer identity within a mainstream space. This manifested itself inside the artist’s own personal struggles, as a queer artist isolating within their own hometown. The films nonlinear storyline has two platforms: the conversation between the artist and the trans model Grace Oni Smith while in lockdown, and the process in which BANKSIE used modern social programs to connect, create and interact with an audience from a remote location.
