REWIND at Stills: DVD Launch & Performance of In Two Minds by Kevin Atherton

Date: Thursday 22 October 7pm | Location : Edinburgh

Edinburgh’s Stills is marking the launch of REWIND + PLAY – a DVD documenting key works from the first decade of artist’s video practice in the UK – with a free performance of Kevin Atherton’s In Two Minds. A two monitor installation first exhibited in the Serpentine Gallery, London in 1978, the work consisted of Atherton on one video monitor asking questions of himself on the other monitor. At the time of making the piece he had no intention of using it beyond the Serpentine show, the rough and ready state of the black and white tapes attest to this. However, the ‘open’ or ‘incomplete’ nature of the work allows him to ‘re-enter’ it and create a new live version, where as a 58 year old man he can answer questions put to him by his 27 year old former self.

Produced in collaboration with LUX, REWIND + PLAY feautres everything from early conceptual experiments exploring the parameters of the medium to works dealing with media culture and television, testifying to the range and diversity of the first years of video as new media.

DVDs will be available to purchase at Stills.
