My “Anxiety” installations begin with my own anxiety- the anxiety that makes me lose my breath, grasp for words, and feel that sudden uneasiness of an imminent event. In my paintings and installations I produce work that evokes this psychological quality in physical and environmental space. These spaces function as limits or boundaries of the physical realm. I see anxiety as a limitation, bounding me. The enclosed spaces that I either work within or represent function as limitations and confines as well. The forms I fill these spaces with are metaphorical in nature. I consume a space with a repetitive process of breathing into each paper bag, referencing an escape to anxiety through hyperventilation. Securing each bag to walls, ceilings, floors, and any other properties of the space, creating a place as I slowly envelop it. This piece constructs a surreal place that remains strangely comforting, in its scale and theatrics.

Filmpoem 34/ The Shipwright’s Love Song

I spent some time with Jo on her narrow boat, Tinker, and recorded Tinker’s sounds, alongside her moving through the water. This is a male voiced poem, so I was persuaded to read it. I shot it last month on Kodak Ektachrome Super8, which is now so rare as to be prohibitively expensive. This will be the last filmpoem for a little while as Luca, Chris and I concentrate on partnering Felix Poetry Festival for next year’s Filmpoem Festival, alongside working with Absent Voices in Greenock and delivering Filmpoem Children’s Workshops in schools throughout the land. Busy times for Filmpoem!

This film was made with the support of the Poetry Society, the Canal & River Trust and Arts Council England.

“The Lord’s Prayer”
Music by Shiri Malckin from Israel
Lyrics and voice by Nina Maroccolo from Italy
Video art by István Horkay from Hungary

Horkay’s art is epitomic in the double meaning of the word: a fragment, an incised part of something already in existence, and – just because of this incision – is an injury to the finished surface, to the tangle of writing or a finished picture. This relies on the experience that man, handing himself down through signs, simulates a kind of sense-wholeness. In these series this textual sense-wholeness appears to be ever different as different colors enter the surface at different sites. It is the same and not the same at the same time. “Once the signs are scars, then the wounds will tell tales of some non-alleviated history” (D. Kamper – Zur Soziologie der Imagination Hanser V. 1986. p. 148).
