My solo screenings of 'Uber Memoria L Part I' and 'Uber Memoria X Part I', curated by Brie Trenerry, MARS Gallery, 1-24th February, 2018. Opening 8th February 6:00pm - 8:00pm.
‘Form the Dark Light’ is comprised of two recent slow cinema works from the wider Uber Memoria collective series placed within The 51 Paintings Suite. The First, Uber Memoria L Part I, is the first of a ten part video play reconstructing the poses from characters located in early German medieval paintings to then be situated into new artworks as a ‘memory’ of the former. Uber Memoria X Part I is the first of a ten part video play that recontextualises 18th century English Romanticist portrait paintings through the guise of a gothic sublime. Both artworks, although separated by series and intent, contribute to an ongoing visuality used in my work to posit darkness as a device to represent the subject in chiaroscuro with the intent of evoking sentiments of oscillation between nocturnal tension and false memories.
