Talk & Presentation: Remote Viewer

Graham Gussin

Event overview

Graham Gussin’s FVU commission ‘Remote Viewer’ was filmed in September 2001, and premiered at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham in April 2002. To look back at this key work from a distance of more than a decade, Gussin was joined in conversation by Ikon Director Jonathan Watkins with the intention of locating the piece within the artist’s wider practice. The dialogue ranged freely across a number of subjects, and ended with an audience discussion that considered the various forms of disembodied telecommunication that had emerged from the science-fiction spectrum of parapsychology with the increasingly everyday phenomenon of the internet, and its lightning, border-crossing incursions across time and space.

This event was in association with Ikon, and was part of Film and Video Umbrella's '25 Frames'.

'Remote Viewer' was a Film and Video Umbrella Touring Exhibition commissioned in association with Ikon Gallery. Supported by the National Touring Programme of the Arts Council of England and The Henry Moore Foundation.
