Untitled (2003)

 

Performance (3'). Collaboration with Susie Green. 

 

Glow-in-the-dark paint, tinfoil, sparkler, camera flashes, string, birthday candle, pre-recorded synthesizer soundtrack created by the artists.

 

Untitled appears to be a firework, yet one slowed down and broken up into its constituent parts. The artists choreograph the action - obscured by darkness - cueing sounds, employing simple pulley systems and triggering lighting and effects. A slow build up reaches crescendo, and unfurls over three minutes. 

 

A first  collaboration with Susie Green, Untitled has been performed in various locations, including the artists' bedrooms, The Chateau (Glasgow), The Ship (London), and Galerie Antje Wachs (Berlin).
