Still Life Moving Fragments

Tin Sheds Gallery
10 August to 8 September 2012
In collaboration with Louise Curham

Consisting of two series of moving images works, this collaborative project between Jo Law and Louise Curham explores the notion of still life within contemporary screen practice. Playing with the tension between stillness and movement, the works make use of the quiet intensity of still life and the fleeting, unstable properties of the moving image, exposing the overlooked yet enigmatic undercurrent of domestic interiors.

Drawing upon George Perec’s concept of the ‘infra-ordinary’, the works echo his question: ‘how should we take account of, question, describe what happens every day and recurs everyday: the banal, the quotidian, the obvious, the common, the ordinary, the infra-ordinary, the background noise, the habitual.’
