Straight On From Here is a video performance in which the artist throws an exit sign repeatedly into the air; the title is also the name of an emergency exit pictogram indicating that an escape is directly forward. This work uses the exit sign as a symbolic device to problematise the notion of ‘coming out’ as a fundamental naturalised life event for queer individuals.
