Kara Crombie
Aloof Hills (Episode 1: Family Meeting)
December 4, 2009 - January 3, 2010



Crombie exhibits a new video work. Sixteen-year-old Laurie Van der Screwd has a terrible secret, and there are few on the Aloof Hills Plantation who can help her. Father has left for the war, and Mother has taken this as a cue to embark on a self-absorbed hedonistic bender. Julian, who is responsible for his sister’s predicament, welcomes her problem as an entertaining diversion from the dull plantation scene. And Buttons is just mentally incapable of being helpful. Laurie may have no choice but to flee the place she has never left.
