Anna Lucas

Things that had stories rubbed out, 2010

Experimenting with a new studio-based process, Anna Lucas presented a 16mm film extending her investigations into perception, projection and vision. Lucas worked closely with artist Jo Addison to build a collection of photographs of objects that could be seen as screens or blank spaces. The images were used as a starting point for filming torch-lit visual dialogues with a group of artists. The film utilised the raw and tentative footage from those shared moments of looking, allowing the spectator to glimpse fragments of these connections.
