Marie Shannon has created delicately intimate works for over thirty years, rooted in her domestic surroundings and investigations into the creative process. Following the 2009 death of her partner, Julian Dashper, Shannon catalogued his works and archive in their shared studio. From this lengthy process she gathered material for text-based video works and related photographs. In 2017 her survey exhibition, ‘Rooms found only in the home’ was presented at Dunedin Public Art Gallery, now touring New Zealand. Short Stories marks a departure for Shannon in bringing together a body of moving image works developed over the last eight years.
