Standstill of the Moon in the North (Part 2)

with Alicia Matthews

time, take my side

A glacial fiction and an impressionistic vision of the liminal places of perception are explored in this moving image and sound installation by Alicia Matthews and Robbie Thomson.

Told from the perspective of rocks, healing springs, radio, air and emptiness; the work re-imagines an island’s environment and the traces of it’s former inhabitants. Stone monoliths and steel antennas bookend 5 millennia of monument erection, communion and the appeasing / harnessing of invisible forces necessary for survival as well as for metaphysical ends.

The species’ drive towards salvation or destruction in the externality of space underscores both the veneration of the lunar standstill in neolithic society and the hypercapitalist spectacle of Space X rockets in the climate of environmental anxiety that it currently endures. Somewhere between the moon and the water, tectonic plates fold quartzite veins into animism, shale is fractured and the burns erode.
