Sarah Bayliss: Intermitting Glare




At its root Intermitting Glare is a body of new work exploring a collapse of meaning and perspective. Installed in and around the altered gallery space will be a combination of screens and a projection displaying several new moving image works. Each synced and overlapping they physically break-up and refract the real space of the gallery whilst fragmented content disrupts the viewer’s experience within, and outside, of the frame. Intermitting Glare imagines the screen as a body of water or a transparent plane; the horizon unfixed, undetectable and infinite with the viewer accordingly disorientated, floating, disarticulated. Questioning the screen as a material boundary Intermitting Glare attempts to dissolve body and image together.

Working across a variety of media Sarah Bayliss’ practice uses performance to camera, objects and documented moments to investigate the malleability of space- time with a desire to disrupt prescribed knowledge systems for something more hopeful. Her research is underpinned by an on-going exploration of relations between the body and its environment, with a key area of interest being Bergson’s image as being material: as thing.

Intermitting Glare continues Bayliss’ investigation in this relationship between body, landscape, space, viewer and performer through the image that spills out of the screen; reforming a physical reality whilst inviting the figure to walk into the screen, becoming something more virtual.

Intermitting Glare will feature a collaborative text between María Angelíca Madero and the artist.
