A Play in Time 2008

A Play in Time is a video work filmed in St Anne's Well Gardens in Hove, historically the site of one of the first British film studios set up by George Albert Smith in the 1890's.  The video explores the activities which take place within a public space of recreation, celebrating the incidental and the everyday. Interweaving off screen sound with a doubling of visual image it meshes seasonal and chronological change with subjective experiences of the passing of time, drawing attention to the play between perception, memory and reverie.
‘Susan Trangmar's finely detailed work activates a visual taxonomy that reveals equivalencies between moments and images in the natural world and human gesture…events seems to assemble themselves into visual scenes within an ambient acoustic field, and then to dissolve, or disassemble out of sight. …The philosopher Elizabeth Grosz has talked about ‘fluid corporeality' to describe a condition of being that suggests the interconnection between the inside and outside of the body, the means through which subjectivity is always in the process of becoming and changing in ways that are inscribed in the body's patterns and actions. It is within these terms that A Play in Time attends to agency and identity, and to sexuality. Stepping away from narrative and character, it lights on patterned activity and the dynamics of relationality within a space.'
