On a recent residency in Connecticut, Rees, inspired by the romanticised death of Virginia Woolf, performed in a wood, by a lake wearing a Victorian wedding dress. This video work, juxtaposed with a study of the concluding chapter of Charlotte Bronte's arguably feminist masterpiece, Jane Eyre, develops the artist's interest in iconic heroines and the notion of marriage.
These short pieces create a dialogue which explores femininity, gender and the representation of the romantic rescue in film, literature and popular culture.
