Newspaper (for bathers, weekend) (2018)

35 sec (excerpt)3 channel installation / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"Sonya Lacey’s video installation Weekend (2018) imagines the St Bride Foundation swimming pool as a place for workers in the London newspaper printing industry to relax and socialise. To create this work Lacey has washed sheets of newspaper until the content becomes abstract, floating forms, that are then reconfigured into film. This process of translation and mediation follows her ongoing interest in the fluidity of language and information systems."
