Lullaby of Loss
Brenda L. Burmeister
April – May, 2014
Brenda L Burmeister is a reluctant conceptual artist, devout experimental film/video maker, but above all, an avid metaphor maker.– drawing parallels between personal insights and universal experience, between a simple action and a complicated truth, and between herself and the audience.
Brenda L Burmeister portrays the delicate, albeit common, moments of fissures within the family unit, portrayed with uncommon vulnerability and unflinching resolve often with a performative aspect. The work elicits a broader conversation around the themes of intimacy though exposure, identity within the family and the role of technology in personal relationships.
