Pursuit of a Shadow
Talbot Rice Gallery
I was told about this exhibition by Georgia when she was invigilating there, and I’d recently invested in a projector, a tool which will incredibly useful and malleable to me.
Immediately as I had entered the first room of the spacious Talbot Rice building the complexity of the room was apparent.Monitors circle the floor inwardly on themselves, echoing each other as the media being displayed changes with each flash of the camera in each clip being played.
This exhibition has shown me that complexity can be achieved in projection work through simple, interesting means of presentation. Projecting onto objects, tables, protrusions from the wall, faces is really interesting and brings the medium a fresh perspective for me. Dee has gone as simply as blocking off areas of the projector bulb with duct tape to achieve these simple blocks of light.
An incredibly inspiring exhibition which will definately inform, and influence, my work over the next few months and far beyond as I look at experimentation with projections.
