In the past, Dominic Redfern's video installation work has been described as 'minimalism meets melodrama'. In his most recent installation, Drama he makes good on the description by utilising the language and conventions of soap opera to draw the audience in. In previous works Redfern has been drowned, stuck in an air conditioner and disposed of his own body. In Drama this violent tendency is re-directed into the break down of the relationship between the artist and viewer, re-configured as two combatants in a melodramatic confrontation.
