Spitfire Beach, the HD film, the model and two A0 photographs.
In Spitfire Beach (2010) Lisa Stansbie takes the dogmatic instructions supplied with Airfix kits and ends with a sculpture and film that defy the ordered kit-building narrative that exists in the plans of each aeroplane. Hurricanes and Typhoons, Mosquitoes and Spitfires are transformed into places and events that are woven into a narrative that takes place on an impossible shoreline, where a queue of people abandon the mementos of their life into the sea.
