Erasure, Installation View - Goldsmiths University London, 2018.
‘Erasure’ is a HD video and forms part of the ‘Fugitive Layers’ work made in 2018. It was created by re-editing fragments of a found 16mm film that are then polarised and put together with a bespoke soundscape designed by the artist.
This work was exhibited at Roman Road Gallery, London in 2018 in a three person show with artists Anna Katai and Marianna Maurico. The exhibition was titled ‘Apophenia’ and was curated by Alix Janta-Polczynski.
It was produced with help from a Cork City Council Artist Bursary Award and Goldsmiths University London.
The found film used to make the video component for this work was excavated from abandoned waste ground on a farm on the outskirts of Madrid. This work creates a synthesis between the materiality of the degraded film and the geology of the site in which it was found. It is an examination of entropy, mutability and decay - both in the context of human temporality and ecological degradation.
