a so-called archive

  • United Kingdom
Audio Tracks 

a so-called archive depicts a former colonial archive, imagining "lost" films from within it, using distinctive soundscapes, choral arrangements and a radio play within the confines of images from a disembodied tour of the exquisite corpse of this building. An archive which continues to be home to purulent images that we cannot, will not, or choose not to see.
