About

Cinders (Now Off You Go But Remember, You Must Not Turn Back Into Rags) Andrea Slater Cine City 2009 Exhibition: Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th December 1-5pm Private View: Friday 4th December 7-9pm The life of a story: fairytale, pantomime, film. Everything had turned to dust and ashes and out of this there came a shoe. A shoe that, all at once, was a test (of truth, beauty or identity), the key to success and a ticket out of despair. A shoe of transformation. A shoe that glittered more brightly than it ever could in the physical world of things that clumsily come into being, fashioned by mortal hands from mere stuff. The most important thing about the shoe is that it doesn't exist. Nuts and bolts, timbers and floors fall away leaving fragments in the salvage yard of your mind. As time goes on the pieces mix and meld with others to form a mutant concoction of a story that starts a life all of its own. Through a process of re-purposing found fragments, of moving image, text and sound, and by playing with notions of theatricality and a shared cinematic consciousness, I aim to deconstruct the threads of modern myth that shape our lives and find alternatives for a better future. As part of the Cine City Festival, Grey Area presents Andrea Slater's moving image installation based on the film ‘The Slipper and the Rose' (Paradine Co Productions 1976). Borrowing clips from the original movie combined with the artist's own material, 'Cinders' is an exploration of the blurring of our memory of cinema and one's own past. With thanks to David Frost, Naim Attallah and Tim Cochrane for their kind permission to use excerts from the film ‘The Slipper and the Rose'.
