Close to Home

Installation ViewAlcultura, Algeciras, Spain,  July-August 2018


The installation showed two works in shipping containers set in the Bay of Gibraltar and The Straits made at different times.  


Close to Home ( 1982-85) is a 16mm film comprised of two parts. Part one was shot in Berlin and part two are a series of shots from a ferry as it leaves Gibraltar in the distance as it enters the Straits.    Part two of the film was shown with a remixed soundtrack.


Apparitions (2013) is a multi-media expanded work of a set of five photographs sourced from small album photographs and a video of 15 mins in which a camera scrutinises these five small, hand sized photographs as they evoke a narration of responses and memories in response.  The installation includes a booklet with the text of the spoken Apparitions soundtrack.
