Presentation Title:

  • Overall Concept for the Construction of a Rehearsal of Memory

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • This work is about the re-recording of the life experiences of a group of people detained in a maximum security mental hospital. It is a mirror to ourselves (“normal society”) and our amnesia when confronted with the excesses of our society, a nightmare that leads to misinformation and fear about mental health systems. This mental space is where strong fictions lie and invisibly glue together the mirror from which we view our own sanity. This is a rehearsal of memories not quite forgotten.

    The production of this interactive programme has been commissioned by Video Postive 1995 and the construction of the artwork is set to take place during January to April 1995.
