Moira Salt

Moira’s work spans across moving image, installation, or spatial works, and printed works dealing with language, and narrative. This breadth of media allows her to explore spaces along different fronts: cinematic spaces, bridging the gap between ‘space’, and ‘place’, and physical space, with its various reproductions. 

Often working with repetition, loops, or montage, her artworks focus on iterations, or re-iteration of images, or aspects of space within these different medias. By creating works that constantly repeat, and seamlessly merge into the ‘beginning’ from the ‘end’, a strange ‘non-space’ is formed. The viewer is left in stasis, suspended outside a ’cause and effect’ reality, surrounded by aspects/after-images of these ‘real ‘truths’. 

Various forms of reduction, and limitation add to this pocket of reality; perspectives, and perceptions are reduced to their components, and sewn together to create new ‘sub-spaces’. What governs, and drives these spaces becomes specific to Moira’s artworks, as they are generally research-based.
