Photochemical Hallucinations

16mm Expanded Cinema Tour May / June 2008
Donnerstag, 26. Juni 2008

Friedrichstrasse 112A,
1. Stock.
20 Uhr Einlaß - Beginn 21 Uhr

With her 16mm triple projections and film perfromances, Sally Golding combines photochemical experiments with explorations of the horror movie genre, presented as live perfromance. This unique show is a must for everbody who loves movies, experimental film or dark underground groove. Sally lives and works in Queensland, Australia and is coming to Berlin as part of her world tour. In Australia, together with Joel Stern, she also organizes the Off-Festival "Otherfilm Festival" in Brisbane, AUS.

Performance Description
Handmade 16mm projector extrapolations / performances; chaotic distortions of optical, mechanical, and photochemical processesŠ.

Sally's obsessions with film: archiving, archeology, and arcana are threaded together to form a psychedelic and sculptural cinematic Victoriana vision.

Not Still Life
A Technicolor nightmareŠ Live explorations into the sordid past of colour processesŠ Untangling the 'three colour separation process' in which three records of the same image are shot and projected back through RGB filters to make your eyeballs tingle. Rotating colour wheels are employed in attempts at a hybrid 'Friese-Green' system (can you glimpse 'realistic' colour?). Candied visions and projector performance make for a gothic live Victoriana experience.

Face of an Other
Obsessions with the horror genre manifest themselves onto the filmmaker's own body in a bizarre attempt to meld the real and the hyper real. A live performance in which humanity has forgotten itself, or did Hollywood just get carried away?

(Bloodless: Now and Then)
Bloodless Landscape / Johnny's Ghost

Originally a pile of discarded film leader, photographic images begin to flicker as interjections within the apparently empty screen space. Fleeting moments of landscape imagery appear distorted by time and light.
An unsettling, gothic 'European' narrative disrupts the desolate, desiccated Australian landscape. An Abject Leader mutable expanded cinema piece, these trees and chemicals have endured a long projector performance battle with lenses and prisms many times.
