Christopher Köller’s Aberrant is a suite of videos and still photographs that explore bizarre and compulsive behaviours conjured out of everyday routines and objects.
Taking as his starting point newspaper reports which have caught his attention, Köller has created five video re-enactments which variously convey the sheer weirdness, peculiar drama and pathos of these extreme presentations of the human condition.
Aberrant is installed in 5 different rooms of 69 Smith Street and washes over us as an unsettling, creepy, sometimes funny sometimes tragic wave composed of the extraordinary actions of ordinary people.
