SCENES FROM PARAMOUNT MOUNTAIN
William Mansfield & Eddie Sharp
28th - 30th August 2009. Serial Space, Sydney.
Scenes from Paramount Mountain was the first stage development for the hybrid theatre show Some Film Museums I Have Known (ACMI, Nextwave Festival 2010, Melbourne & Old Fitz Theatre, Imperial Panda Festival 2011, Sydney.) This exhibition explored the politics of remixing and re-appropriating cinema.
Strands of open ended narrative, true stories and works of fiction, were woven together using live video feeds, budget animatronics, kinetic dioramas, a model train set with mounted lipstick camera and cheap A/V effects to create the sense of a haunted, alter-modernist, theatrical space.
