The Lonesome Receiver

The Lonesome Receiver continued Mark Shorter’s depiction and construction of male identity through the persona of Renny Kodgers. This work is the sequel to Hello Stranger; presented at Campbelltown Art Centre, which enacted a classic road movie mise-en-scene to rethink cinematic space and time. For this project, the artist looked at the communication channels and emotional connections of CB radio, favoured by long distance truck drivers. This project formed connection points from Gertrude Glasshouse to Gertrude Contemporary via CB radio, and connected the project to the broader airwaves around Melbourne.
