On resonance104.4fm an hour long discussion with Tina Gverović, Ben Cain and Nico de Oliveira. (Repeats Sunday, 2nd June at 9am.)
Video performance, which as a starting point uses a selection of works, drawings, animation, live footage, conversation and sound. The work is based on events that recently happened and those that are imagined. It casts outsiders and unruly bodies in action, where spaces collide, and where voices invent possible futures.
The video-performance will be followed by the launch of Tina Gverović’s 7″ vinyl ‘Or an Island or a Boat’, written and conceived by the artist, spoken by Sarah Holden-Boyd and mastered by Stephen Godsmith.
Over the course of the month of April, artists Tina Gverović and Vlatka Horvat engaged in a daily image exchange – sending each other one image or a short video sequence per day.
Through this exchange, which involved constant re-focusing and re-invention, as well as repeating, modifying and altering the elements of the previously received material, the artists built a strand of images, a mutating sequence of evocative visual propositions, each responding to the one received the previous day.
This month-long visual dialogue, which the artists engaged in via email, will become a starting point for a narrative reflection and live exchange between the two artists. This live event in the gallery will approach the collection of images both as a single object to reflect on, and as a set of fragments, each of which carries the potential to instigate a dialogue.
A print-it-yourself PDF of the thread of images from this month-long exchange will be available for download on this page prior to the event on 11th of May.
