Cushla Donaldson, Burnout Bride, 2019
Cushla Donaldson, Burnout Bride, 2019.
Digital print, 500 x 700mm (paper size).
Printed in an edition of 15 by Ilam Editions.
Burnout Bride is inspired by a photographic standard wedding photo shot amongst those engaged with car culture. The Bride stands in the exhaust of a “burnout” often produced by the groom in his vehicle. It speaks to an unnamed, unacknowledged feminism existing in polluted masculinity. This misty romanticism is reinterpreted by this counter culture with what could be read as a dirty and destructive activity, evoking early working class encounters with the industrial revolution.
This is an edition from our 2019 Annual Fundraiser.
