Small Talk

Two screen video installation with stereo sound, 8 mins, 2010.

The footage on one screen is of the petrol station shot in 2001, on the other screen are the same views re-shot nine years later. The subtitles on each screen appear to be having a sardonic conversation with each other about fonts, the weather, the passing of time, music and silence, why an artist would want to re-make a video work nine years after making it, personal and artistic regret, and failure. Commissioned by Durham Art Gallery.

Purchased in 2015 by The Arts Council Collection.
