The Singular Beauty of a Glorious Death, 2015
8mm film transferred to HD | 6 min 55 sec | colour | sound
Christopher Hall examines the interplay between memory, ritual and notions of power.
Celebrating the materiality of physical film, he creates montage-like collages, pushing images through alchemical processes to generate images that cannot be achieved digitally.
Manipulated frames become striking, loaded images; what previously existed on the edge of consciousness is now excavated from the film strip and presented for our extended contemplation. Recurring images of ceremonies, marching bands and military parades take on new meaning, posing questions around how we remember, how we memorialise and what, in our digital world, will survive.View Christopher Hall's profile
