"New Video Work by Richard Couzins"
2001-04-26 until 2001-05-20
UK United Kingdom
Exploiting links between sound and image, Richard Couzins utilises video to inhabit spaces that sit in-between different media and modes of representation. He describes this uncertain location as a place where things are forged, where there is an abundance of energy, process and spontaneity. The work is full of parody, irony and tensions, veering between overstatement and understatement, with a heady overdose of metaphor, humour and unsettled feelings.
Vernacular and colloquial speech, the language of objects, and archaic forms of communication -such as music hall songs- are at the heart of Richard Couzins' investigations into language and language systems though the medium of video.
Following the preview in the Gallery between 6.30 and 9 there will be a DJ set with Choppi Cee in The Macbeth bar.
