Abstract

Men in the Wall was produced with an Arts Council England Capture 3 Award and an FRSF Award. Men in the Wall is a four-screen 3-dimensional stereoscopic screen dance installation, a world of four men whose shared framed lives reveal a public quartet of private difference.Men in the Wall is a complex 25-minute loop across four screens with a linear narrative and choreographic structure, giving a potential virgin viewing experience as one hour and 40 minutes, unusual for the fleeting attention often given to gallery based visual installation work. Breaking into the visual art domain that denotes gallery as ‘home’, Men in the Wall raised the debate concerning curatorial practice and contemporary art practice and is considered by the Arts Council and Capture to be the first of its kind.
