Matthew Noel-Tod – Blind Carbon Copy, Bristol, 3 October 2008 6-9pm PICTURE THIS: MATTHEW NOEL-TOD’S BLIND CARBON COPY PREVIEW: FRIDAY 03 OCTOBER 2008 6-9PM EXHIBITION DATES: 04 OCTOBER – 15 NOVEMBER 2008 Blind Carbon Copy is built from many sources. The film includes a performance undertaken by six actors, a dancer, a baby, various life drawing sessions and two bands; one based around guitar and drums, the other electronics. In bringing these things together the video asks where the point of translation occurs, where does concrete meaning lie and what takes precedent in these moments? William Fowler, Curator of Artists’ Moving Image, BFI National Archive Based on an evocative script collaged from Matthew Noel-Tod’s personal email correspondence re-interpreted via a combination of spoken, physical and musical performances Blind Carbon Copy rethinks 1970s artists’ performance and addresses technology and disembodiment. This exhibition contains nudity, adult language and strobing imagery.
