Pope | Lamp
Screening and performance by Andrew Lampert and Greg Pope.
Thursday 27th October at 20:00 hrs
Atelier Nord’s ANX, Olav Rye’s plass (inng.Sofienberggt)
A sonic and visual feast (possibly) incorporating 16mm, Super8, video and 35mm slide projections with sound effects, field recordings and the spoken word. A Multi-projection live installation with cracked narratives, fractured concepts and atomised foundations. Text and image contradict themselves to a standstill in this semi-improvised piece and out of this seemingly irredeemable wreckage a burning flame starts to flicker at the end of the tunnel ….
