Marina Abramović at Home

Step inside the gallery to encounter an uncanny video image of yourself where nothing is as it seems. You are in the centre of London, surrounded by buildings and traffic that seem to break the rules of perspective. Your reflection alters, becoming increasingly strange. Your movements appear delayed and your voice becomes an unsteady echo. 
This self-image is intended to create feelings of disembodiment and alienation - the ghost of the ego; the mirror cracked.
Echo uses a technological version of the 19th century stage trick ‘Pepper’s Ghost’ and the camera technique ‘contra zoom’ most famously used in Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Vertigo.
The installation was made in collaboration with neuroscientist Professor Olaf Blanke, who has demonstrated ways to manipulate the mind’s perception of the body’s location by using 3D video. This reflects Jacques Lacan’s psychoanalytic theory known as ‘The Mirror Stage’, which argues it is only when we recognise our reflection that we can begin to understand ourselves as a single subject.

In September 2005, Tim Andrews, then a successful country solicitor aged 54, was driving back to his home in Milford, Surrey on the M1 when his left thumb began to shake. His life was about to change forever. A month later, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and within nine months, he was forced to take early retirement. He had no shortage of things to do; he loved cricket and the cinema as well and he set about writing his memoirs.
However, another drastic change in his life occurred in May 2007 when he answered an advertisement for nude models in ‘’Time Out’’ for a book of ‘real’ nudes as opposed to professional models. Since then, he has been photographed by over 250 photographers, some student and some amateur but mostly professionals.

The sea provides the air we breathe, the food we eat. It is our last wilderness.
