Ryszard Dabek & John Encarnacao
Ryszard Dabek and John Encarnacao work at the intersection of moving image and sound. Together they produce experimental video works, live performances and installations. For this year’s BEAMS festival they will be presenting a new installation, The Other Side. This work is conceived of as an exercise in cinematic and radiophonic conjuring, where the spirit(s) of the past and present comingle. The installation will simultaneously draw off an extensive archive of found and especially shot film footage and the invisible ether of the radio waves. Using a ‘systems’ based approach to both sound and image composition the installation will evolve throughout the evening to create an at once captivating and haunting atmosphere.
