TL43224998

2014

Disused former Cold War surveillance bunker, installation, projector, still image.

 

A disused Cold War surveillance bunker provides the site for this installation.  On arriving at the destination, audience members take turns to visit the bunker alone.  Descending a 4.5 metre ladder the viewer arrives in a dark concrete room, in which remnants of a metal bed frame and a wooden cupboard can be made out, amongst the debris.  On the wall above the bed still photographs, of the world outside the bunker, flicker on and off alternately illuminating the space and plunging the viewer into darkness.

 

'TL43224998' was the second work to emerge from the artist's collaboration with a current UK Prisoner.  This work was exhibited as part of 'Body Talk', Cambridge, May 2014.
