Chisenhale Gallery presents an event by Elizabeth Price, featuring her new video CHOIR. Concerned with processes of assembly, CHOIR brings together disparate bodies of material and archival technologies into dissonant concert. The 15-minute work is narrative and employs archival photography and moving image, along with motion graphics and digital animation. It is comprised of two episodes, the first of which constructs the architecture of an auditorium, whilst the second stages a melodramatic performance.
CHOIR features a new musical soundtrack: a distorted cacophony of appropriated pop melody, arranged by Price and incorporating original recordings by John Stanley.
For this one-night event in Chisenhale Gallery's main exhibition space, Price has also devised a presentation environment to extend the video's dramatic synthesis of architecture and collective voice.
