Black Box Take Stock is an exhibition by performance artist Gordon Douglas that focuses on the performativity of Travelling Gallery in its 40th Birthday year. Gordon has worked closely with birthday-gram Mike Collins, AKA 'The wandering Minstrel' towards a series of performances of personalised birthday messages in the unseen sites of Travelling Gallery's tour. A video documenting these performances was recorded through the reversing camera of the bus, essentially transforming the whole bus into a oversized video recorder. Each subtle manouevre of the vehicle acts as a choreographed series of tracking shots, with the driver taking on the role of cameraperson.
The exhibition will be touring until December, for venues please check the Current tour dates and locations page.
