The Make-Up

installation / two 45 minute audio pieces

Canberra Contemporary Arts Space (Gorman House), 28 August – 3 October 2015
for Footy Fever, group exhibition curated by Alexander Boynes

The MakeUp is a pair of stereo channel audio works using raw field recordings taken at football matches in Spain, Belgium and Australia between December 2013 and February 2015. Inspired by the sense of timelessness when watching a game and the culture clash that occur during international football, these two 45 minute pieces have been designed to play back to back and create a hypnagogic loop that reflects the stillness and speed that come and go throughout a game before that the golden moment when mere mortals become heroes.
