ALICE WADE is a video artist and mother of drones. Her surreal films, with a particular bodily preoccupation, juxtapose seductive and grotesque imagery. These intimate portraits map ambiguous narratives in response to sickness, surveillance, and obsession. Her distinct, off-beat artistic practice often revolves around her unconventional, performative address of the drone. By humanising and feminising drones, she subverts the devices’ common associations with surveillance and war in her playful and psychedelic performances. Her treatment of drones disrupts a paranoid ‘God’s eye view’ or male gaze, embracing something more haptic.
