Your Double My Double Our Ghost 

Australian-British artist Sally Golding  presents two new audiovisual installations which conclude her year-long Embedded residency, delivered in partnership with Sound and Music and the South London Gallery (SLG).

The installations explore Golding’s interest in perception and phenomenology, and consider audiovisual art as a participatory experience. Golding’s work questions states of reality, challenging notions of narrative and the act of perceiving through the deployment of sonic and visual fragments, and the reworking of the bare components of audiovisual media such as light, substrate, and amplification.

The new works involving multi-sensory projection, optical sheeting, reflection, lighting, and sonic composition extend upon her repertoire of live expanded cinema performances, multimedia installations and sound recordings. During her residency, Golding accessed the Grade II listed former Peckham Road Fire Station, recently gifted to the SLG, as means of exploring geo-dislocation, representation and the double.

About Sally Golding

“The British born, London based Australian artist has created dozens of installations and performances in recent years, stradling lines between expanded cinema and sound art. She ceremonially piles dizzying sensations onto audiences, from the trembling light of multiple projectors to the serrated noise pulsations of the scores”. - Tristan Bath, The Wire 

Sally Golding (AUST/UK) creates sound and light compositions through performances, installations and recordings. Her sonic work revolves around a custom system of printing complex optical sound compositions onto 16mm film, and performing with light sensitive audio devices and amplified lighting. Known internationally for her expanded cinema performances Golding’s live sets are edgy and intense, driven by a minimalist approach to horror aesthetics, leading her to science and superstition, philosophy and pulp. Golding’s audiovisual performance work focuses on the experience of the audience, pushing the boundaries of visual and auditory perception through the breakdown of the cinematic system into flicker, waveforms and colour fields. Cacophonic in form and content her performances transcend chaos, pushing the audience into sensory and hypnotic zones.

One of the most elegant art spaces in London”, Adrian Searle, The Guardian

The South London Gallery is an internationally acclaimed contemporary art space which has been free to the public since its foundation in 1891. The gallery opened on its present site on Peckham Road in 1891 as the South London Fine Art Gallery and Library. Its founding mission to “bring art to the people of south London” is a vision which continues to hold true to this day and with a particular emphasis in the past twenty years, in showing challenging new work by emerging and established British and international artists.
