Golden Ciphers/ Three Red Herrings
25 March - 29 March 2014
Opening Night Tuesday 25 March 2014, 5 - 7 PM
At the heart of "Golden Ciphers / Three Red Herrings" lies a concern with how audio and vision can be ruptured from one another.
Kirkwood' work takes cues from the schizoid, polemical film making of post '68 Godard as much it does from the soupy sound of Lynch' 'Eraserhead' or the heart-palpitating arrhythmia of Tony Conrad' 'The Flicker'. Tending towards a cinematic existentialism this dual screen video installation features 'real-life' avatars that are at once comfortingly iconic to the eye in their filmic milieu and uneasily displaced to the ear in the sonic sub terrain that they inhabit.
