Janice Kerbel â€œKill The Workers!â€
at Chisenhale Gallery, through 15 May 2011
Janice Kerbelâ€™s new installation â€œKill The Workers!â€ commissioned by Chisenhale Gallery sets up four stands of multiple light fixtures facing each other to suggest a central â€˜stageâ€™ area. The theatre lights follow a series of cue scripts written by Kerbel to condense a 24-hour day-to-night period into 24 minutes. The otherwise empty gallery this way undergoes a succession of narratives and progressive plots, played out solely by the different settings of theatrical lights.
