Jennifer West is an American artist known primarily for her manipulations of film-stock. Originally conceived as a swan song to celluloid, Flashlight Filmstrip Projections comprises a screen-less, communal viewing space in which audiences, using handheld torches, will activate film strips suspended throughout the gallery. In addition, a live performances will take place during the opening night and repeat a number of times during the exhibition. Flashlight Filmstrip Projections will transform Tramway into a delirious cinematic playground, one that harks back to pre-cinematic experimentalism, while also imagining an unusual contemporary afterlife for an increasingly obsolete medium.
