Soundings - WALL (Carlisle)

Cumbria Poland Live Art Exchange, Carlisle

July 2004

This version of Soundings was called WALL. I made a film of Jane Dudman moving against our studio wall and projected this onto the wall in the Tullie House gallery in Carlisle. A recording of our abstract voice sounds was the soundtrack on the video. The first part of the hour-long performance was my making marks / traces of Jane’s movements on the wall with charcoal. In the second part, the film changed to Jane running her hands over different parts of her body and walking forward to reveal her palms to me. My live response to both the image and the sound this time was to write on the floor creating again an abstract written ‘language’.
