THE NIGHT SCREEN
22 August–08 September
Opening: Wednesday 22 August 6pm–8pm
The River is video footage of the Danube taken from the Nibelungenbrücke, a busy bridge in Linz, Austria. The original version includes the ambient sounds from the bridge — cars, trucks, trams and people. The version of The River for the Night Screen is silent. However, the ambient sounds of Gertrude Street are very similar to the ambient sounds of the Nibelungenbrücke. So there is something of a transposition of place, but instead of the river flowing beneath the Nibelungenbrücke it is flowing in Seventh’s shop-front window.
