Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard: Artists Talk
Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard are a collaborative partnership making artworks that re-enact and reflect upon past cultural moments. For example, their live work File under Sacred Music takes as it’s starting point an infamous bootleg video documenting a live performance by The Cramps for the patients at Napa State Mental Institute, California in 1978. Their meticulous recreations include participants, performers, live sound, audience and space, and capture the original event and it’s remaking in a unique video document.
To mark the opening of their new Live at LICA film installation Jumpers (what must I do to be saved), the pair are presenting a fascinating artists talk to provide an insight into the new piece and their broader art practice.
Their public exhibition launch will be at 6.30pm on the same evening (24/1/13) in the Peter Scott Gallery followed by a music performance by Chroma in the Great Hall.
