SPECTRAL SPECTATORSHIP

 

video installation, two synchronised projections, suspended screen, 152 x 275 cm, 2012.

 

Dismantling the dialogue and performative denotations between the UK’s most successful female Medium Sally Morgan and her audience Spectral Spectatorship presents a synchronised dual projection on a single suspended screen, generating a fragmentary layering of image and sound creating disruptions in dialogue and sensory slippages. The screen manifestly becomes a conduit for messages in the absence of the corporal and the audience’s movement around the screen inadvertently creates a quarrelsome changing of dominance between audience and Medium.
