Are You The One?
Cobb Hall provides an atmospheric setting for an abstract investigation of power and self for seeper’s Are You The One? and invites you to experience the light and the dark side of power.
Discomfort coupled with exhilaration, the interaction across space and time and the weight of power on an individual is metaphorically visualised. God rays light up the space at times and darkness will encroach at others. seeper references the historical concept of the sovereign looking to the heavens as ‘chosen (by God)’ and plays with the perception and reality of control within this. Imagined Glory and isolation come together to disconcert, inspire and question you as a viewer.
The psychological weight of power is dramatically explored using ethereal yet physical elements including light, sound and aroma, but also virtually allowing an individual to break earthly boundaries and experience rising above; raising questions around the true nature of individual power and perception.
Are You The One? was commissioned by Lincoln Castle, Lincolnshire County Council and Threshold Studios. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.View Website
