Removed from the Eyes of Strangers: 'Nightcruising' screening

5 November 2009

As a preview of the Removed from the Eyes of Strangers exhibition due to open at MRA Project Space in January 2010, Matt Roberts Arts will be screening 'Nightcruising' (2009), a video by Matt Lippiatt.

Continuing with the theme of Freud's Uncanny, 'Nightcruising' (2009) is a collaboration between artist Matt Lippiatt and pornographer Liam Cole. Matt has re-edited video clips from a porn scene shot at night in London's Hampstead Heath, manipulating the sound and speed of the footage to foreground the ominous character of the nocturnal woodland setting and the ambiguous activities taking place.
