Below the Apple Tree is a series of video works by Alex Plumb that explore psychological dimensions of the social, sexual, and spatial interactions that pervade everyday life. The series aims to render what is (in)visible through a different type of rhythm - one that un-notices the everyday act, whilst drawing out the psychic dimensions that surround it. By amplifying this rhythm, Plumb aims for the audience to experience a moment of heightened awareness: a moment that continuously fails to arrive, but is continuously diverted. This on-going promise of rupture and resolution creates unease about how a familiar space has become unfamiliar: some ‘other’ space.

Alex Plumb (b. 1991) works within the lens-based discipline of constructed video. Through a reorientation of the spectator’s encounter with images of the mundane, his practice attempts to amplify questions about the psychological interplay between the subject depicted, the site of performance, and how the work unfolds through the slow release promise of imminent rupture.

Plumb is currently completing a Master of Art & Design (Visual Arts) at AUT University.
