Philippa Wall has created a site specific work that delves into the possibilities of a space restricted by size but not ambition. Philippa’s practice stems from an exploration and development into experimental analogue filmmaking. Initially, using techniques formed during printmaking and exposure with a focus centred around the process of making. Circulating around philosophical notions of space and time, Philippa has projected, both literally and psychologically the idea of reliving, or repeating moments that in reality can never truly be repeated. This has been realised in various experiments working directly onto 16mm film. These experimental works have created optical sound films which has lead to further exploration between analogue and digital sounds created through various processes. Recently, Philippa’s practice has focused more on projecting just simply the moment of creation which has began an interesting journey into performance.
Following on from a series of performances with wall paper lining, complimenting the sturdy yet absorbent nature of the material, Philippa has grounded the familiar material into the world of living sculptures.
