The performances of Bruce McClure (US) are physical experiences, hallucinatory and immersive, that stretch boundaries while celebrating the movie going experience. Working with 16mm projectors and guitar effect pedals, McClure elaborates powerful pieces that play with light, sound, the space of the performance and the viewer’s perception. “The total effect converts the room into an enormous reverberation chamber for both ear and eye, throbbing with mechanical thunder and lightning” (ArtForum).
Preceded by Rapture, a rarely screened work by the late Paul Sharits – and his only one in video: “a pseudo 'rock video' which will never be shown on MTV”, questioning “the border line between the sublime and the repulsive” (Sharits).
