This is our first video in our COVERAGE series to be published online. We are interested primarily in contemporary art and creative causes. It is a short snapshot of interesting events.
This video showcases work from a dear friend of ours and an extremely talented and recognized artist and writer, Christopher Cozier. This installation was presented at Alice Yard, - a collaborative arts space of which he is co-Director - on Tuesday the 18th of March, alongside his award ceremony for the Prince Claus Award he received in 2013.
Christopher Cozier: One Night Collaborations Version 2. Presented here are short intervals during his installation which showed for the first time in Trinidad.
He staged three experimental and interactive projects at Alice Yard, involving a range of collaborators.
The evening included:
• The latest version of Sound System, a project which began in 2001 and has thirteen years of accumulated audio contributions, with mixes by Robin Foster, Martin Raymond, Daniel Haun, and Kevon Walker, and sound elements by Sheldon Holder, Christian Campbell, Chantal Esdelle, Sheena Rose, Ebony G. Patterson, Yvette Grey, Jomo Slusher, and Cozier himself. This is the first time the work will be presented in Trinidad. The street installation is presented with the support of Suspex Auto Club.
• A series of animated projected sequences by Nadia Huggins, Rodell Warner, and North Eleven, interpretations of Cozier’s recent project The Arrest: Hands Up, Hand Out.
• Made in China, a live action in collaboration with Shaun Rambaran.
