Collaborations with Alexandra Zierle & Paul Carter
Both these video pieces are collaborations between Alexandra Zierle, Manuel Vason and Paul Carter and were created in December 2011 during their joint ‘Performance Transition’ residency slot at The Exchange. During their 5 days together the artists explored notions of image and performance and their intricate relationship, in preparation to working at greater length later on for Manuel’s latest publication ‘Double Exposures’.
Experimenting with various media as image, this work organically came out of a atmosphere of play and improvisation in the wind at dusk, where the artists (kindly assisted by Jo Hellier) responded to the gale force winds with a symbolic and poetic action at the edge. Performed by Zierle & Carter and filmed by Manuel Vason. Edited by Manuel Vason, Zierle & Carter and Jo Hellier.
Experimenting with various media as image, this work organically came out of a atmosphere of play and improvisation at the site, where Alexandra spontaneously responded to the tree, Manuel decided to film a section of the action and without consultation or dialogue Paul edited the film.
