An Evening on Memory
Past Imperfect focuses on the interplay between recollections and the blanks in our memory. Some old super 8-films by Circus Family Togni preserved by Home Movies find a second life in a 4-screen audiovisual performance. In Gill Arno’s modified slide projectors, static images from found slides fade into one another, revealing the musical possibilities of the projectors’ mechanical sounds. With a derailed collection of sound recordings, Aki Onda creates a 4-hour long sound diary.
An Evening on Landscapes
Sculpting the Land casts a new light on one of Art History’s oldest themes: landscape. Guy Sherwin, Courtisane’s Artist in Focus, carries out a performance that shatters the illusionary threedimensionality of the portrayed landscape. In “Draw a Straight Line and Follow It” Luke Fowler and Lee Patterson follow a straight line through the centre of Ghent, recording what they meet on their way.
