The Video Home System is an extensive collection of video tapes obtained from an array of locations.

About

A-Side B-Side Gallery presents Sophie Hambling and Shahram Saadat’s first collaborative project;

The Video Home System.

Exploring the complexities of the obsolete video tape, this extensive collection addresses the video as a sculptural object, in relation to its function as a visual device. 

The publication which is alongside the exhibition focuses on the archive of the object. No longer widely available to purchase, they are the preserve of charity shops, car boot sales and eBay. Often offered in bulk, disposed as unwanted purchases, unwanted gifts, unwanted pasts. What becomes of the memories caught, the films watched and then slowly become obsolete, unwanted and finally abandoned, often mid-way through a scene, midway through a narrative, commercial or private.

Shahram Saadat is a student at London College of Communication. Although studying photography Saadat is more intrigued in the design of objects and the role that text plays. Saadat aims to bridge the gap between fiction and reality. 

Sophie Hambling, also studying at London College of Communication, focuses on repetition, form and colour. With a strong interest in sculpture, Hambling explores the physicality of the object.
