Alberta Whittle


Artist, researcher and curator Alberta Whittle presents her moving-image work ‘RESET’, co-commissioned by Forma and Frieze London. Informed by the writings of queer theorist, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, ‘RESET’ interweaves gothic imagery, fears of contagion, xenophobia and the ensuing moral panic that often follows such anxieties. Exploring timely questions relating to personal healing and the cultivation of hope in hostile environments such as the ensuing global pandemic or colonialism, this urgent political film strikes the balance between grief and reflection, empathy and desire.
