Scenes from Paramount Mountain - Exhibition Documentation
William Mansfield & Eddie Sharp
28th - 30th August 2009. Serial Space, Sydney.
'Scenes from Paramount Mountain' was the first stage development for the hybrid theatre show 'Some Film Museums I Have Known' (ACMI, Nextwave Festival 2010, Melbourne.) This exhibition explored the politics of remixing and re-appropriating cinema.
Strands of open ended narrative, true stories and works of fiction, were woven together using live video feeds, budget animatronics, kinetic dioramas, a model tray set with mounted lipstick camera and cheap A/V effects to create the sense of a haunted, alter-modernist, theatrical space.
