FACE2FACE – Shanaz Gulzar, curated by Steve Manthorp. 5 – 25 Nov 2010

team work: Shanaz and Steve preparing the screen - photos by Dave Holmes

The installation – two synchronised videos projected on either side of a double-sided strip curtain – is specially constructed for the gallery and effectively divides it in half.

Here are some pics of the rather lovely Shanaz and Steve, working on the specially made strip screen that will go across the gallery

and here is the strip screen on the opening night.   An exploration of the process and act of narration is physicaly reflected in the construction of the work, where visitors to the gallery have to discover the second, hidden projection for themselves, guided only by an audiotrack.
