The Late Shows: Nicole PolonskyLighting Up Time: Nicole Polonsky
Friday 17 May 2019

Especially for The Late Shows 2019, artist Nicole Polonsky presents Lighting Up Time, a dynamic piece in two parts inspired by the silent film era and the role of its Deaf actors.

An interactive installation of banners and audio refrains takes up residence at Northern Print for one night only. Lines of text, or ‘intertitles’, found in silent films, have been screenprinted by the artist on reflective banners, which light up when viewers direct torches at them. Each of the texts is teamed with a unique sound composition by Andrew Lovett that can be listened to on phones and tablets. This juxtaposition of visuals and audio recalls early cinema and the live scores that often went hand in hand.

8.30–9.30pm BSL interpreter available for Deaf visitors to discuss Lighting Up Time with the artist and gallery team. 

Enjoy the second part of Lighting Up Time 7–11pm Saturday 18 May Side Cinema.
