Disappointing Doll

  • Disappointing Doll © Cordelia Beresford

Disappointing Doll is inspired by a photograph taken in a Sydney institution in the1860s: the image of a tiny girl recorded only as ‘Orphan child aged 3’. The work explores how everyday female experiences have historically been deemed unworthy of intellectual consideration. Combining gesture and cinematic devices, it evokes a psychological space: one where shame and seclusion from the outside world lead girls in institutionalized care to be imagined mothers, sisters and lovers; and where child’s play can echo through the bodies of grown women. A 2-screen visual artwork with stereo sound design.
