Apparitions

Apparitions, 2013

HD, Super 8, sound, 15 mins

 

Several versions of this work have been made responding to different exhibition contexts.  In the original video,  black and white Super 8 footage is combined with a video recording where five black and white photographs are held up one by one scrutinised by the camera and soliciting a spoken improvised response.  An audio fragment from the beach scene in  La Dolce Vita (1960) is heard, The cinema film and the photographs are synchronous.

Apparitions is part of Una vaga zona geográfica/A Vague Geographic Zone – an ongoing cycle of works and writing which draw on images and sounds from novels, films, personal photographs and archive in a collage of memory set in the  climate and geography of the Mediterranean and of the small region around Gibraltar and the Straits.
