Jane and Louise Wilson in conversation with Mark Cousins
From 'Stasi City' and 'Undead Sun' to 'Suspended Island'
Date: Friday 9 November 2018
Venue: AA Lecture Hall
…the Wilsons’ media archaeology of warfare, Futurist zeal is displaced by a melancholic retrospection, with any belief in a logic of progress abandoned.
- Erica Balsom
We are particularly interested in what happens when the geography of a location takes on a porous identity, or becomes a place outside its own border and in particular this idea of "a suspended island. What happens when a place has lost control, when the site is no longer active and when all the power and command has left.
