Rickshaw No. 1 (Two Times Three)
by Rachel Lowe
16 May – 24 May 2014
Private View on Friday 16 May 2014, 6 – 8 pm
narrative gallery and The Mews Project are pleased to present a screening of a piece by Rachel Lowe; the first project in a series of week-long exhibitions, developed in collaboration between the two spaces, and presented at narrative gallery.
Originally recorded on super-8 film in Lahore in 1995, Rickshaw no.1 (Two Times Three) 2009 depicts two separate journeys throughout this Pakistani city.
Shown simultaneously as one single projection, buildings, people, half-seen events, rush past indiscriminately.
Butting up against each other, the three-minute films, which are shown in their entirety, create a seam running down the centre of the image. This seam, where the two peripheral viewpoints collide, emphasises the intangibility of each depiction, whilst also suggesting that they are somehow incomplete.
