|Additional Information:||BAM 120 Days and Nights of Staggering and Stammering. STAGGERING + STAMMERING The young man at the beginning of Tarkovsky's Mirror stammers and stutters, and learns not to. My grandmother staggers out of The China Hall Pub, The Pimlico, The Eagle The White Horse Tavern and never learns. In the icy wastes of the French Alps she dives into freezing lakes followed by my grandfather, without a St. Bernard for company. The Soho Troy Bar always clings. However far I try and get away from Grey Gardens it still tugs me back to 'Tea for Two'. Our lives are smeared throughout the world, recalled through disparate, dissolute, fragmentary images, sounds and memories. 120 Days and Nights of STAGGERING + STAMMERING is an installation that sucks in and spews out images of the people and surroundings it encounters, real or imaginary, wherever it happens to stumble, New York, London, Venice,Iquitos, Ocho Rios. Consisting of old SLR film cameras and LED spotlights each of the 120 'projectors' will throw out images of people, events and the fabric surrounding wherever it is exhibited, in an ever changing, cavorting carousel, that documents the transitory lives that pass through this crystalline world. These images will be taken before and during installation and while the installation is up and running. The audience will be invited to donate their own images of the area showing their experiences in it and of it, which then will be re-photographed and slotted into these projectors. A dense flickering array of images negotiated and dictated by the space, can be projected into, onto and outwards of any given situation/site. They prefer shady aspects but can flourish during daylight hours too. The larger less bright images are made visible by the descending gloom of the night. The smaller, closer to the wall/ceiling/floor, ones can cope with the intensity of other light sources. The projectors can be clumped together in one location or be spread around different locales as needs be. The audience will be enveloped in and disrupt this cacophony of images, creating and destroying as they wander through and around them. Shadows will appear and obliterate the wall images only to reappear on the bodies of the transgressors. The images will be instantly recognisable as they will depict places just passed through on the way to the exhibition site. There will be temporal shifts occurring sometimes of mere days alongside others of an indeterminate age. Referents will be lost and gained throughout this encounter.|
