The Gap of Two Birds

Anne Tallentire


Synopsis

'A super 8 camera taken for a walk over a mountain in the West of Ireland depicts through the sudden and uneven movements of the camera an undulating terrain that alludes both to material and wider political conditions relating to boundaries of place. The video originally shot on super 8 and transferred to VHS stands as a single screen work that was first screened as an element within an installation/performance at The Showroom, London.'
