Light Trap with Greg Pope & Gert-Jan Prins
Feb 4, 2011, 22:00, Festsaal Kreuzberg
Oslo-based filmmaker Greg Pope's Light Trap is a performance with three prepared 16mm projectors and a sound artist. The work is a sound/light sculpture, performed live and in constant flux by factors both random and controlled, as the the film is physically altered using sandpaper and hand tools. Light Trap explores the raw elements of cinema: the projector, the film material, the darkened room and synchronized sound. Working collaboratively and individually, Pope has made video installations, live art pieces and single screen film works since 1996. For this performance he will be joined by Gert-Jan Prins. Prins has been known for twenty years as one of the most challenging sound artists in the Netherlands. He focuses on the sonic and musical qualities of electronic "noise". Prins makes connections with modern electronic club culture, occupying a radical position with his investigation of electronic sound and its relationship to the visual.
