As part of the Autonomous Series at Campbell Works, John Tiney will be debuting a new film work that continues a practice that is fictive, compulsive and challenging from the 4 July 2007. Investigating crossovers between artists' film, video and traditional cinema, Tiney explores the notion of illusion and duality through contemporary and historical reference.
This work uses Kubrick's The Shining as a citation. A well-known scene of Danny tri-cycling through the hallway of the Overlook Hotel has been reorchestrated and adapted. As spectators, we are subject to his visions as we experience the similar turns, corners and flashes of vision. Sound and moving image recedes us into to a trancelike state. This double agency begins to envelopes a dialectical notion of being within and beyond an experience.
John Tiney graduated from Goldsmiths College of Art in 2005, his work challenges our notions of art mixing references from photography, illustration, the internet and sub culture - blurring the boundaries between authorship, copyright and authentication.
