SALLY GOLDING (Australia) | OtherFilm
Golding combines film projection with performance and installation creating live cine-sculptures and interactions. Golding deploys folly and foray into physiological cinematics, creating embodied beams and alchemical projection performance. Photographic compositions printed as optical soundtracks and decomposed uprooted vinyl library music neatly situate Golding’s work at the crossroads of science and superstition, philosophy and pulp. Deconstruction of cinematic materials and apparatus reveal slippage between materialist investigation, sculptural forms, and bodily intervention – redesigning the cinematic viewing experience, exposing the typically locked process of beam-audience-screen. Cracked cinema for darkroom compositions, light bleed, contorted projection sports, dismembered narrative, strained sonorousness, whimsical instructional and wanton optics.
