Australian visual artist Sally Golding and writer Edward Colless (Australian Arts Writer London Residency, Australia Council for the Arts) stage a collaborative exploration of the culture of the ‘afterlife’ in some of its manifestations: as ghosting, as the undead, as doppelgänger and as spectral horror. The event will be moderated by Mark Pilkington.
Golding presents live mixes of cinema combined with live performance in a twenty-minute work involving audience interaction and two-way mirrors.
Colless presents a theoretical fiction as a dramatic monologue, as if delivered from the afterlife. The two works will be followed by a dialogue about the collaboration.
Pilkington runs Strange Attractor Press and is the author of two books, Mirage Men and Far Out: 101 Strange Tales from Science's Outer Edge. He has written for numerous anthologies, magazines and web sites, from The Guardian to Fortean Times.
