Abstract:

For beside ourselves, Brass Art’s first solo show at The International 3, these three collaborating artists premiere Interposition (2006) a single channel looped projection in which the shadow forms of the artists inhabit a terminal link at Manchester Airport. Amidst the flow of regular night time travellers, their ghosted doubles share this between-space with the relentless rhythm of the travellator. They appear and disappear, unseen by their more solid companions.

Alongside this haunting film they present a series of wall mounted, hand-cut, powder-coated brass silhouettes, illuminated by a moving light source. Above, About, Below (2006) presents a shadow play of an impossible balancing act performed by the artists. They climb, jump, teeter and fall in a cycle of actions and triangular configurations. The figures are brought to life in sequence by a travelling light source, only to be rendered invisible again by its passing.
