Luke Conroy (Australia, 1990) and Anne Fehres (The Netherlands, 1988) are a Netherlands-based multidisciplinary artist duo with a focus on projects that respond to their shared curiosity around the themes of identity, memory, history and the culture of everyday life. Working together since 2016, their work draws upon Luke’s background in visual-art, education and sociology (University of Tasmania, Australia) and Anne’s training in audio-visual design (Royal Art Academy of Ghent, Belgium).
Naked Windows is an immersive 360-degree video work by Anne Fehres and Luke Conroy. The title refers to the social phenomena of houses without curtains, a common trait of homes in Dutch cities. Exploring this idea, in the video the audience occupies the role of a voyeur, invited by the artists to peer ‘backstage’ into their personal interior spaces. In this role, the audience must negotiate their own curiosity and voyeurism while exploring the boundaries between public and private, truth and fiction.
