On Air: Katie HareThe ikono On Air Festival is showing Katie Hare's film Coming from inside the house 2, which juxtaposes clips from ‘Slasher’ films with original footage over a central projection and two monitors. In 'coming from inside the house 2', the camera slowly tilts over a succession of bedrooms with young women positioned on their beds surrounded by their personal belongings and clutter. The women meet the camera’s gaze with a defiant calm. Our gaze lingers on the women and yet the sense of voyeurism is tempered by the impression that the women are protected by their intensely personal spaces, their jumbled possessions creating a barrier, or force-field against the outside world. Originally presented as part of a multi-channel installation, 'coming from inside the house 2' acts as a non-judgemental portrait of young women coming of age and carving out their unique space in society.
