Out of one's screen
Performative film
Transformation of the
Chalton Gallery into a cinema,
3 screens and 6 speakers
55 mins

Chalton Gallery
25.52 - 27.05 2018
Initially I had the idea to find a cinema with 3 screens
to project a film that I would perform live but instead
I transformed an art Gallery and it works fine.

I performed the one hour's film twice on 3 consecutive evenings.
Because of the complication of the screening installation,
I figured out that the only good seat was in the very
middle so I made small groups of the audience and
squeezed them as much as possible in the middle of
the gallery so that they would look like one big viewer,
or a bunch of school kids ready for their annual picture.
I gave them some homemade popcorn
and some
beers but I didn't like the sound of people
drinking from bottles together with the soundtrack
of my film so I poored their drinks into glasses.
I was hiding at the back during the screenings,
and using a hand held device to start and edit
the film live, so that each night it ended up being
different film.
