Lee Hangjun: The Projectors and Film Walk 16mm Multi-Projection Performance
“The Projectors” (2011)
Throughout the history of cinema, we always see the countdown leader and hear the beep sound just before the start of a film. In this performance, we hear sound
and emotional residues from narrative cinema such as laughters, clapping, and cheering. The projectors become the protagonists in this performance, facing the audience.
“Film walk” (2011)
Film perforations are the holes placed in the film stock during manufacture and are used for transporting and steadying the film. Film perforations identify the material as a film strip. The artist loads the film reel, and the projector’s optical sound head reads the perforation as a sound and he draws the film strip while walking. People can see and hear him walk. The audience will be able to experience the film strip’s movement. This project keeps expanding with handmade perforations, escaping from the original film company’s material and returning back to the basic questions of the relationship between film material and projector.
Lee Hangjun: After Psycho Shower 16mm Optical Sound Head Performance and Improvisation (featuring Dickson Dee)
“After Psycho Shower” (2009-2012)
“After Psycho Shower,” a 16mm multi-projection piece employs the famous shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” (1960) and Tony Wu’s “Psycho” (2001), deconstructing all the cinematic elements by embracing various performative mystique techniques such as sound and image delay, dissolving colour, and time and space into the real physical performance space.
