Entanglements is a multiple projection performance by Luís Recoder and Sandra Gibson that invites sound artists to process the optical film tracks from up to four 16mm projectors. The scratched opaque footage is not what interests us per se but the effect it has in dispersing or scattering the projected audio-visual event itself.
- Entanglements for (up to) Four Projectors (2009 – 2014) Multiple 16mm projectors, black & white film loops, mixed media, live optical sound processed by Claudio Rocchetti, 60 minutes
The following day, Saturday May 10, Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder will install a special version of Threadbare.
- Threadbare (16mm projector, film, reels) “Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder look back at the history of film technology. Their richly imaginative installations and sculptures treat celluloid and the projector in ways that are surprising and evocative. Their artworks are poetic and beautiful, offering profound insights into the nature of the medium. Threadbare (2013) is a film projector wrapped in 16mm film footage whose silhouette calls to mind Mickey Mouse.” - John G. Hanhardt, Senior Curator, Smithsonian American Art Museum
