GUY SHERWIN
MAN WITH MIRROR
1976 – 2011
SUPER 8 FILM, MAN, MIRROR

"Guy Sherwin’s Man with Mirror 1976–2011 combines camera, projector and mirror, [...] as a means of registering spatial and temporal overlaps; performed over a period spanning thirty years, the work is a moment moved – a study of time in different settings."

Duncan White, 'Expanded Cinema up to and Including its Limits'

"'At that time it was nothing to do with my getting older of course, because I would have been almost the same age when I first performed it in 1976. It was more to do with taking an outside space – a landscape, some trees on Hampstead Heath – and then projecting it into an interior closed space. So, it was a dialogue between what you know to be on the outside and its projection on the walls inside.'"

Guy Sherwin interviewed by Duncan White in 'Live Cinema' both from Expanded Cinema: Art, Performance, Film (Tate Publications, 2011)

Performed at Seeing in the Dark, Newcastle upon Tyne 19th October 2011
