The work, titled Treacle, comes from the term for an old fashioned dessert made from turning crystallized sugar into a liquid. Treacle references this physical transformation, the domestic and slow syrupy movement. Pulling heavily from pictorial traditions, our aim is to refract and scramble the visual information of interior and exterior landscapes.
This project was inspired and produced during a residency at Rutherfurd Hall, a historical house museum in New Jersey, USA. Connections began to coalesce from looking at the site, original blue prints, farmed Astro-Lunar photographs by the pioneer photographer Lewis Morris Rutherfurd and the intensely picturesque views of the lake that seemed to forever reframe John Constable paintings. The insistence of romanticism paired with layers of historical technologies brought to mind displacement. We fabricated an odd object, something more out of a H.P. Lovecraft short story such as Color out of Space, that allowed us to reflect the space in complex convex and concave tessellations. Placing an object of uncertain origin within familiar pictorial tropes, the performance of the body within transforms both the object and the surrounding space. This work attempts to de-anchor. Using analog practices, no digital manipulation is used in the work other than the original digital filming.
