Brill's theatrically staged video installations feature multiple protagonists, both human and non-human, who enact plural narratives. In Pup & Blubber, the exhibition’s central characters (from which the show takes its title), are a quiet TV presenting duo, like the sombre ghosts of Ant & Dec or Sooty & Sweep. The double act attempt to explore brain-machine interfacing, taking us from the largest tech conference in the world to a tiny puppet theatre. The video considers the possibility for quotidian and staged ways of travelling outside of the body, in a process whereby an individual can insert their consciousness into non-living ‘hosts’, like cuddly toys, puppets, robots and data. This ‘astral-projection’ can be viewed as an allegory for the literal commercialisation of health-based neurological research. Through a process of compression and collage, Brill creates an intimate world that questions and dissolves notions of the private internal and public external.

Hazel Brill has presented solo exhibitions at the Zabludowicz Collection, Baltic 39 and Turf Projects. As well as being selected for a FLAMIN fellowship, 2019- 2020 she was selected for a major new survey exhibition by Jerwood, presenting new works by 15 early-career artists from across the UK. In summer 2019, she also conducted a residency with Agorama at Raven Row, London.
