Vegetable Memory: Time-based works at George Fraser

Briefly dropped into this opening at the George Fraser on Tuesday (Update: revisited Saturday) and snapped a few shots. Really cohesive and successful overall, with a number of interesting works. Karena Way's undulating light work installation uses a long field recording to trigger speakers at different intervals and seems to have evolved - when I revisited today she'd removed the paper coverings, exposing the quivering cones of the tweeters and subs on the floor. Below that is Boris Dornbusch's Funkstille, a montage of shots from office interiors to motorway tunnels, all shot on grainy 8mm and projected. Finally at the bottom, and my highlight of the show, is Sonya Laceys sound installation. With a lovely DIY aesthetic, the piece uses an array of cheap FM radios to create feedback from a tone which seems to emanate from a microphone on the glass next to them. Other artists at George Fraser include A.D Schierning and Jenny Laycook. There's also another range of works as part of the show currently at the Film Archive.

according to my information the work funkstille is originally shot on 16mm and transferred to video for projection. nevertheless a stunning work !

Ha, alright, I'm guessing you have insider information. :-) I stand corrected.

Actually thought the setup worked really well, the rough white projection box transitioned between the video and the installation opposite.

He probably shot it on the broken and defective Sony Video camera that he just sold me on TradeMe. He now refuses to return my money, despite have advertised the camera as 'in excellent condition'. This man is a cheat and fraud.
