As we reflect on the psychological implications of newly imposed physical distancing between ourselves and others, IMMA Screen invites a timely reflection on the power and politics of representation and the continuous fabrications of the self and the other. In different ways, the works engage with performance and the role of the camera in the construction and mediation of identity. A number of these works also deal poignantly with ideas of loss and erasure.

#IMMAInsideOut Collective Project

During the lockdown the #IMMAInsideOut Collective Project allowed us to share art, ideas and our experiences. We asked our followers on social media to share their art and lives with all of us in a collective effort to combat social isolation and boredom using the hashtag #IMMAInsideOut.

Lots of people joined us on this adventure and took photos of their lives during this time – their unusual desktop or art studio at home, what they could see from their window, who they shared the quarantine with or their kid’s creativity – sharing them on their social media channels and tagging us.

View our image gallery as a digital exhibition, a reflection of our shared experience of these exceptional times. The image gallery comprises work shared by you from March to July 2020.
