Test piece combining video and comic panel appropriation
Test piece creating a new narrative from appropriated comic book frames.
These pieces really stood out for me at Constant Dullaart’s recent show at Carroll / Fletcher. An image displayed on a screen, with a photoshop selection around certain elements of the photograph. Incredibly simple, something that I’ve seen and used every single day for the last 17 years or so, but was so moving to look at when applied in this way. I really responded to these pieces, for me they lifted the show out of the post-internet / post-irony fad that is kicking around the galleries of London at the moment and repositoned the photoshop selection as a form of animation.
