Our teenage years are a potent mix of social anxiety and self reflection. While many are happy to call that sensation a thing of the past, virtue lies in navigating the shifting grounds of adolescence. The video works presented in this screening explore the visual continuation of that ‘teenage feeling’, and propose that for all its confusion and volatility there's incredible worth in sustaining an unstable, juvenile sense of identity.
