Jem Finer : Slowplayer @ AV Festival 2012
I filmed artist Jem Finer playing some records on his Slowplayer at the opening weekend of AV Festival in Newcastle.
Jem asked me to choose a record from his vinyl collection. I chose “Bird Sound in Close-up”.
The Slowplayer exhibition features a different record played each day of the Festival, from Ravel to The Sex Pistols to Ornette Coleman, slowed down to the length of the gallery opening hours. With this work Finer continues his interest in long-durational processes and extremes of scale.
The festival runs from 1-31 March. for more info you can visit www.avfestival.co.uk
