In Bardo: Act Two
At BALTIC 39, Brill will create a stage set for a narrative-based video installation. Statues will become props, actors, sets and avatars as the video projection unveils a cycle of short scenes across the sculptures’ physical skins.
Blackwood makes a playful study of the proliferating images that he is constantly exposed to online, with particular reference to the Tumblr platform. Throughout the exhibition the artist will live broadcast the work he will exhibit in the gallery and develop new work that balances his interest between the digital and physical while taking full advantage of the sensory qualities that can be broadcast over the internet.
