I follow Yoko and Yoko follows me at MCA Sydney

yoko-ono-war-is-over

An invitation arrived to respond to Yoko Ono’s instructional film scripts. The suggestion of a film. Film as it exists in a proposition, an invitation, a request to think. ‘Visualise peace’ Yoko says. Visualise film. #summerofyoko

Q. Which Yoko piece(s) are you responding to and how?

A. I am taking Yoko Ono’s current day Twitter feed as an unrequited instruction set. I follow Yoko Ono and Yoko Ono follows me.

Q. If we imagine a spectrum in which predetermined structures, scores, instructions sit at one end and  spontaneity, intuition, improvisation at the other – where does your work sit in that spectrum? Or is that spectrum faulty to begin with?

A. I have a structure within the walls of the MCA. The technology of the image projection. The design of the seats. We have voice, light, human will. I feel energised by unbridled human energy in tightly controlled environments.

Postscript. I don’t believe in freedom in art. It can only be given by imposing a structure or rule set upon it. There is no freedom. There is no restraint.

‘I see framing and zooming as a sacred act also.’

I am a monk. I am a tourist. Within the street I see the stage for every human conflict and negotiation. Specifically for this video I was interested in contrasting the buddhist principles of mindfullness, meditation, removing yourself from time to the act of photography, grasping for permanence, embalming a moment. The last shot of my 2012 film Jack is a solitary figure passed out in a half-finished Buddhist temple in Footscray, Australia. This film is an oblique sequel.

Jessie Scott on Larry Emdur’s Suit (2002) and the death of analog television broadcasting in Australia.

There’s Emile, part Edward Scissor Hands/part Wu Tang Clan, ably filling the frame with studied awkwardness; not just in a video, On Television. The cognitive dissonance of seeing this for the first time was astonishing: it wasn’t just any TV – it was ultimate prime time chew-cud: The Price is Right. There he is cracking wise with plastic fantastic Larry, playing the game, not giving away the joke, carefully treading the line between performance and reality. A line that, in the wake of the 90s talk show phenomenon, and before reality TVs total dominion, had suddenly become very blurred. It was prescient – a death knell to hackish old analogue, sent from the past to the future, sincere, hysterical and knowing.

Video Art in the Internet Era. Video Letter #2: Emile Zile

‘As part of our critical forum, Video Art in the Internet Era, we asked a series of artists, curators and video brains to send us “video letters” responding to the provocation of our critical forum: how can video artists orient themselves towards or against the complex backdrop of networked technology, smart phones and prosumers of our current world?
Riffing on the YouTube genre of “unboxing”, Emile Zile performed a “boxing” of some usurped analogue technology, the detritus of many a media artists studio.’

I’m beginning to feel my future self looking back and remembering the Rijksakademie experience as a hallucination, daydream or past life.

Jack screens at Institute of Contemporary Arts London.

Jack 2012
4K RED video, 12 minutes
Director of Photography Mikael Brain
Composer and Sound Designer Philip Brophy

ICA London, Sunday 19 January 2013
Curated by Elsa Coustou, Lucia Garavaglia
and Alana Kushnir in collaboration with the ICA
Supported by MFA Curating, Goldsmiths College, University of London

Full details and bookings at http://www.ica.org.uk/35422/Film/Artists-Film-Club-Walking-Sideways.html

In response to the exhibition Fourth Plinth: Contemporary Monument, this Artists’ Film Club presents a selection of moving image works which delve into the social dimensions of architectural monuments. These monuments and their surrounding environments are more than a physical space; they generate individual and collective memories. The works reference the longevity of some built structures and the impermanence of others, exploring how histories are inextricably bound to geography and the synthesis of time.

The screening will feature works by Ludovica Carbotta, Shaun Gladwell, Leopold Kessler, Benjamin Orlow, Deborah Ligorio, David Maljkovic and Emile Zile.
