Two-channel video for installation
GRIMM is pleased to announce the representation of Elizabeth Price (UK, 1966) and will exhibit K (2015), a two-screen, HD video installation in New York this September.
In this two-screen video installation, Elizabeth Price brings together disparate elements – text, image, synthetic voice and a stark, percussive soundtrack – in a witty and emotional exploration of lamentation, commerce, and labor. A ghostly stop-frame animation of the sun – created from thousands of glass plate slides taken between 1870 and 1948 – plays continuously on one of the two screens. On the other, a hypnotic CGI animation follows the production – the weaving, folding and packaging – of nylon stockings. Images of dancers and singers migrate between the two screens, seemingly responding to both the light of the sun and the motion of the machinery.
