Small Weston Room
Jayne Parker, 'Self portrait 2'. Black and white fibre based silver gelatin print. 97 x 73 cm. This is the first time that a gallery in the Summer Exhibition has been devoted to a film work by one artist. In Trilogy: Kettle’s Yard, the artist and filmmaker Jayne Parker reveals her interest in musical expression. The structure of each film reflects that of the music it documents – performances by the ’cellist Anton Lukoszevieze of ‘Récitation’ by Georges Aperghis, ‘Sensitivo per arco solo’ by Sylvano Bussotti and ‘Raimondas Rumsas’ by Laurence Crane – but the visual aspects of musicmaking – the musician’s deep concentration and his physical relationship to his instrument – are also clearly observed. Parker uses these visual elements to enhance the feelings that sound can evoke, encouraging the viewer to experience the music in a more developed way than hearing alone can allow.
Total running time of all three films: 25 minutes.
