“After the Rainbow is a 2-channel video installation that investigates the temporal dimensions of cinema. Through a re-imagining of the initial sequence of The Wizard of Oz (1939), the fantasy world of cinema and the reality of Judy Garland’s sad life collide in much the same way as the worlds of Kansas and Oz in the original film. Instead of taking Dorothy to Oz, the twister transports a young, hopeful Judy Garland into the future where she encounters her disillusioned adult self. This is Soda_Jerk’s second installment in ‘The Dark Matter Cycle’, a series of video remix works that mobilise the conceptual framework of time travel to explore the relationship of recorded media to the passage of time” – Soda_Jerk
After The Rainbow will screen at Kudos Gallery until June 12.
