Virginia Lee Montgomery interrogates the relationship between physical and psychic structures and the uncanny materiality of lived experience. In her videos, certain visual motifs—video glitches, prodding digits, and dripping viscous liquids—recur in different contexts. Collectively, these forms and gestures rupture material surfaces, opening up portals to unknown ends.
