What is your secret spot? The place you think about when someone asks you to show yours? In March 2009 Canadian video artist Christina Zeidler collaborated with 57 Bahamian artists one minute in their “favourite” or “secret” spot in Nassau.
Together they created one minute of video in each location. Then she edited all of these segments together to make a 57 minute video. The video was screened in Rawson Square, Nassau, Bahamas on March 27th 2009.
The screening featured a live band creating an improvised soundscape to the images. The band comprised of local professional musicians, who came together specifically for this performance. Some of the artists joined their video on stage to add to the live performance.
This is the original video footage with audio documentation of the live performance. If you listen closely you can even hear the audience join in.
Show Me Yours is presented by The Hub and Popop Studios Center for the Visual Arts.
