Augusto Corrieri
The Lasting Image

Saturday 3 April 2010

Conceived especially for Whitstable, The Lasting Image examined particular modes of spectatorship at such a festival. Playing with the public impact and the visual function of advertising posters, Corrieri choreographed a performance installation that challenged this very format through staging and enactment. Turning an image into an event – and vice versa – the work contained elements of humour, trickery and provocation.
