Plastic Palace People.

 

 

 

STATUE is set within the University of Edinburgh’s Playfair Library, crossing genres of science fiction, music, architecture and performance. Based on the book Vermillion Sands by JG Ballard, the song is played out Kubrickian style by a lone androgynous figure,

 

An "Art and Glam Rock automaton".

 

This film was presented across 4 HD screens in Talbot Rice Gallery with a performance, a black engraved mirror (lyrics of the song etched in the Enochian language) and a self portrait of a hand covered in clown makeup captured in a LED lightbox.
