Transposition of a Mountain

11 July 2006. Free entry.

James McCarthy and Jenny Gillam come together in this one-night only performance event at The Physics Room, in an exploration of relationships between sound, image and location. McCarthy maps a lineage of drawing and performance with the aid of a rock climbing harness and tensioned wire. During the performance the sketch is animated by the artist as he 'plays' the wires, exploring pitch modulation. Gillam's live video mix creates an evocative counterpoint. By sampling and deciphering images she further explores the mechanics of representation at play.
