Second installment in a three-part solo exhibition
Installation view of An Interlude exhibition & audience interaction with the installation.
Visitors enter a narrow high-ceilinged space and are drawn in towards a spiralling video being projected onto several layers overhead. By means of a specialised rotating camera mount (created in collaboration with cinematographer Thomas Pretorius), a video capturing the circular motion of a ‘sky view scene’, is projected onto several overhead layers of luminous material. A soft echoing soundtrack adds to the sense of simultaneous immersion and isolation as the viewer is drawn upward toward an endless sky.
"The audience was captivated, especially the children who felt they were doing “rond-om-talies” without moving an inch. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how visitors' faces lit up and their mouths dropped open as they encountered this Interlude within the busyness of the Fair. "
Developing over time and across locations, each instalment of After Midnight unveils elements that recalls and resonates with previous exhibition/s. An interlude follows on the sense of transience, movement and flux evoked in A Prelude, becoming a ‘pause moment’ for reflection, solitude and silence; both exhibitions culminating in the final episode scheduled for February 2015.
