The Consecutive Impostors Return: Operation Rewrite Exhibition in Cork
The Consecutive Impostors are back! The third in the constantly evolving and mutating series of Operation Rewrite exhibitions by Esperanza Collado and me is opening this week. It's the inaugural show in the new Cork Film Centre Gallery, located in the former Gunpowder Mills Interpretive Centre, Ballincollig, Co.Cork
The launch is at 5pm on Thursday, May 24th. This event will include a unique film-performance by The Consecutive Impostors. The exhibition, and the Gallery itself, will be officially opened by Fionuala Sweeney, head of film with The Arts Council.
The exhibition will then run until June 16th. The Gallery opening hours are Wednesday to Saturday, 10am-5.30pm.
Operation Rewrite began in January 2011 as an online video project in which we posted a number of 45-second videos made according to a set of rules, most importantly that one-third of each video should be black screen. However, the project soon boiled over into the production of 16mm films, longer videos, installations, performances, an artist’s book, a photo-blog and a constantly evolving series of exhibitions.
The subject of Operation Rewrite is cinematic montage, its interruptions, associations and sometimes-surprising mutations. The concept of ‘cinema’ it examines is subject to constant re-assessment, embracing perception and projection technology as much as the articulation of signs.
