Double Vision 2: Twin-Projection Films by Malcolm Le Grice and Paul Sharits
Hypnotic expanded works by the avant-garde masters.
Castle Two (UK 1968. Dir Malcolm Le Grice. 32 min)
Berlin Horse (UK 1970. Dir Malcolm Le Grice. 8 min)
Razor Blades (USA 1968. Dir Paul Sharits. 25 min)
The immersive, hypnotic qualities of light, image, montage and double projection – and their psychological impact on the individual – are explored to extraordinary effect in these expanded works by avant-garde masters Sharits and Le Grice. Razor Blades simultaneously attacks and soothes the viewer with sumptuous images and intense, rapid-fire edits while Castle Two intercuts newsreel and other found footage sequences with increasing speed and dexterity. Le Grice’s Berlin Horse, much celebrated for its moving, lyrical beauty and Brian Eno score, also screens in a rare double-projection version.
