I am bit late with my update of this blog and I do apologies for that.
Last week I was back in Valenciennes to finish the installation of the work and open the exhibition. It was a mad week with many problems, firstly technology was the main problem. Trying to show a double projection with two different DVD players wasn’t going to happen. We managed to borrow professional pioneers from www.lefresnoy.net and they kindly connected the two DVD players to a computer so we can start them in a same time. This solved one problem but we still had a major problem with the two projectors. It was impossible to adjust the projectors, they where hanging from the ceiling attached upside down by screws to a timber shelf, which made impossible to move. Only thing we can move was the trapeze but this was not enough. Also there was a problem with the colour, one projector had green and the other purple cast so the images looked completely different and out of sink. With many discussions and disagreements the Gallery decide it, without my agreement to run and show the videos…. And there it was the exhibition opened. I recorded the work on the Saturday morning and came back to England. So now a week in I don’t have any news and don’t really know how the exhibition is going!!!
