AND NOW MY VOICE ENTERS YOUR SYSTEM
Three new 16mm film studies at INDEX gallery, 12th – 21st April, 2013
From the projector a ribbon of film threads across the room and loops back to the machine. The filmstrip cuts through the space – a line of emotion, voice made material – the gallery becoming a poetic moment. In these works the projector rejects it’s principal function and refuses to emit image and instead the machines intone whispered, spoken and sung phrases – each loop a rumination. Using the voice as a key element in the work to transmit a powerful sonic register, the filmstrips slice through the gallery to create kinetic and audible drawings that resonate throughout the space.
