Lucy Skaer Film for an Abandoned Projector

Until 15 December 2011
Lyric Picture House
113-115 Tong Road, Armley, LS12 1QJ

In the darkness of the derelict Lyric Picture House in the Armley area of Leeds, the cinema's old Kalee projector plays a new 35mm film. Specific to its place, Skaer's sculptural film work is the imagined subconscious of the projector itself. Through repeated screenings, the film slowly bears witness to its own presentation through scratches and marks that visibly scar and efface the surface of the image. At the end of the project the cinema will once again be dormant. e-flux
