Fishtank- Richard Billingham

A high-rise council flat in the Midlands, The father, the mother, the brother. Some animals. The father drinks a lot, the brother plays around a bit, the mother holds everything together. The older brother films them with his handycam-closely, slowly, intently, recording whatever is going on.

Small time life- akshuns 1999- Andre Stitt

Thirteen performances by Andre Stitt.

Performance akshuns located in a formative experience and a response to an encoded past embodied in the present that identifies with the marginalised and dispossessed. Social and ethnic cleansing becomes global cleansing via inquisition technology. The human body and by association, all life, becomes the unknowing and disempowered object of surveillance.

The akshuns seek to inhabit, embody and identify with processes of transition, the resolution of conflict; community and communion. These elements constitute an evocation of the individual and communal body on a journey towards redemption.
