Platform Instagram Takeover: Maud Haya-Baviera

Maud Haya-Baviera, Wish You Were Here (Monday production still), 2020

How to keep busy during lockdown? How not to flounder and dream of sunny shores? France-born, Sheffield-based artist Maud Haya-Baviera’s new video work, 'Wish you were here', instils a tantalising dose of escapism at a time when holidaying and long-distance travel remain compromised. She also exposes the conventional tourist gaze and uses Instagram to subvert the limitation of space and time portrayed in the postcards.

Maud will reveal one video excerpt a day during her Site Gallery Platform Instagram takeover on 3–9 August. Stay tuned to the Site Gallery Instagram page @sitegallery! Come back here after the takeover ends to view all of the posts at any time.
