Bryan Eccleshall, Site of 'Gone"
Post-Hoc is the most recent incarnation of a project initiated by Bryan Eccleshall during his In 2010 residency at Bank Street Arts.
Bryan hand-copied onto acetate a photograph of the space created when the Mona Lisa was stolen in 1911. He projected that image in one of the front galleries at Bank Street Arts and oil-painted directly onto the wall. This was later boarded up. All that remains visible is a plaque recording the work.
Bank Street Arts writer in residence, Angelina Ayers, watched this process, and wrote a poem sequence derived from the work, and the questions it raised about originality, permanence and the function of the copy. This sequence, along with newly commissioned work from local writers, will be re-written by Bryan, returning the work to his hand, and projected onto the wall that conceals his earlier painting, creating an installation that examines those same issues of originality and permanence through a temporal artwork.
The installation will feature sound art by Ian Baxter, adding another facet of interaction between poetry and art.
