PASSAGE is an immersive installation. Wright and Zanon-Larcher convert the Boiler House of The Wapping Project into a seedy cinema – desolate, cold, bleak to show a tightly constructed thriller, marrying stills and moving image together. Conceived by Jules Wright and Thomas Zanon-Larcher, PASSAGE was shot in Cambridge, London, Paris, Vienna, Trieste, Milan, and the Gotthard Tunnel in Switzerland – It draws knowingly on cultural and social references, most of which will be spotted by the eagle eyed viewer. Without giving too much away, Cambridge as the starting point for a spy ring is not too difficult, while the opening drive through a seemingly interminable tunnel recalls the tension of Tarkovsky’s Solaris and the astute viewer will certainly spot a Peugeot in Paris, a red coat in Venice and a famous wheel in Vienna.
