Jacqueline Fraser’s works take a particular film as a starting point, adding ‘the making of’ and the year of the work’s production to the title as an indicator of its ‘remake’ status.

Fraser’s works tackle the violence and virality of imagery and visual culture. It is said in cinema, ‘after the shooting ends, the cutting begins’; Fraser’s collages literally foreground the ‘cutting’ of people and places, highlighting symbols of social, cultural, and sexual hierarchies, sampled from high and low culture, past and present.
