Common Ground

Holly Antrum

United Kingdom, 2016
11 minutes, Colour, Stereo
Original format: 16mm film
Available formats: HD Video

‘Common Ground’ was made for an event at the ICA programmed by Lucy Reynolds about experiments in sound, film and performance to accompany the exhibition ‘The sun went in, the fire went out: landscapes in film, performance and text’, curated by Karen Di Franco and Elisa Kay at Chelsea Space. This iteration of the film uses subtitles to circle its evolutionary narrative as a live expanded film work and appraises the film’s relation to sound and image, act and material, archive and intimacy in a correspondence with an occupant in an eco-community she met during the filming. At once layered between common and remote territories, analogies occur between ‘remote’ chance encounters, film-stock, technology, cultural history and geography.
