AboutJamie Shovlin premieres his new project âHiker Meat' at the Fishmarket Gallery Northampton, opening July 9th at 6pm and running until August 28th.
Hiker Meat is a partial adaptation of an earlier work, Lustfaust: A Folk Anthology 1976-81 (2003-6), an archive of material from the fans and musicians of a fictional German band. At that project's periphery was a narrative sketch for the exploitation film Hiker Meat - for which the band composed a soundtrack - and these notes are taken as a starting point for the Hiker Meat Project.
Hiker Meat will be premiered with a live score to Rinzoli's infamous film performed by Lustfaust. This will be followed by an installation of sound and videos loops that simultaneously highlight and deconstruct both Rinzoli's film and the exploitation genre that spawned his film. The performance will see the band compose and reconfigure the film's imagery and sound across 60 televisions and a collection of speakers scattered across and running the length of the space.
