Coming up next: Aphantasia: Twelfth Night
12th May, 2017
Andrew Bracey and Annie Morrad
A reproduction of a historically important painting is presented in the gallery at the same size as the original. A layer of clear gesso is applied, which then reacts with the photographic print and is moved about on the surface using the movements created by ‘embodying a gestural painter’. A saxophonist improvises on to create a sonic landscape that both influences and is influenced by the act of painting. The audience is invited to document the activity in anyway they feel is fit or best to them. The performance ends after 3 hours or when the gesso and ink dries or the saxophonist reaches a state of exhaustion. Aphantasia refers to a condition where the individual cannot visualise. The final painting is left in a state of abstraction, far from the original composition, but using an amalgamation of all the colour and gesture of the original painting.
