" Tom Kemp: No Concept"
2002-04-05 until 2002-04-16
Colville Place Gallery
London, , UK United Kingdom

Imagine watching a performance. Imagine watching a video of that performance. In each case, the record in your memory or on the DVD is distantly related to the original. Now imagine the complete performance captured as a single image. In most cases, this will be nothing but a meaningless and monotonous blur.

What if it were possible to record a performance of human motion as a still picture, full of clarity and intimately connected to the original movementsNULL

Such a technique is not only available but we all use it every day in the form of writing. Tom Kemp abstracts writing as a physical technique and a philosophically powerful means to record his own body at work.

Using a variety of computers, including a Palm handheld, he tests the ability of digital tools to keep up with swift and subtle human movements. The resulting dialogue is expressed as a series of strong and beautiful images.
