#nostalgia is a performance that lifts its structure from Hollis Frampton’s (1936-84) seminal film (nostalgia) 1971, in which selected photographs from Frampton’s archive burned on a hotplate one by one, while a voiceover delivered texts about the images long before they are seen, challenging the viewer’s powers of memory.

For this new performance, the artists have been asked to write a personal monologue in response to an original stock image – created with the future in mind they will fill empty images with personal subjectivities. These monologues will then be performed live in front of the image, as though the speakers were singing karaoke.

Conceived by Laura McLean Ferris and presented by Glasgow Sculpture Studios.
