“…she’s such a mistress of precision mis-timings”

“Here Surman for the first time seeks to relocate the performing body in video, exploring ways of displaying her work in ways more akin to a gallery setting to which the audience can return over time.  In the making of the work, Surman performed to camera for over 50 hours. The resulting stop-frame animation gives the impression of the body striving to leave the screen. This tension between live and filmed performance will be explored by Surman throughout her BS commission.”
