Revisit

Cultural Olympiad 2010

Watching Revisit – a collaboration between Kathy Kenny and Ron den Daass – in Dover’s Grand Shaft on 24 and 25 July 2010, I couldn’t help wondering whether it should have been shown on its own, in silence and further away from Foreign Investment’s Supermen II. But then this is how it was shown and somehow the film’s silence was all the more powerful during the brief moment of quiet when the music and echoing speech of the adjacent Supermen II came to a stop.

Projected onto the wall of the Grand Shaft, the fish look as if they are in a dirty aquarium which quite magically is transformed into a mountainous painted landscape into which a fish dissolves and is set free.
