Gibson / Martelli with Carol Brown and Russell Scoones

Movement and landscape in flux, five figures cut between times and places.
Read More Collaging and overlaying environments, the interior of a motion capture studio and the raw physical landscapes of Central Otago, they inhabit an uneven terrain, negotiated through increasingly perplexed movements and sensory explorations. The consolations of landscape dissolve as fractures and junctures open between the memory and affect of different atmospheres, altering their transit. In this new cartography that is here and everywhere, they take on the rhythm of an altered place. Landscape and nature press hard upon their bodies and its touch continues to be felt as they navigate the sealed, air conditioned, environment of the lab. Tracked in all dimensions, they are trackers, agents of travel to unknown and ungraspable places.

Exploring the persistent urge to be attached to places and have profound ties with them in an era of virtual travel, We Are Here And We Are Everywhere At Once is a moving image installation created by an international collaboration. Russell Scoones (NZ) creates compositions sourced from sound harvested in physical environments. Carol Brown (NZ) specialises in the creation of collaborative choreographic events. Ruth Gibson and Bruno Martelli (UK) playfully address the position of the self in relation to technology, examining ideas of player, performer and visitor, intertwining familiar tropes of video games and art traditions of figure & landscape.
