7–11pm FRIDAY 17 MAY 2019
For The Late Shows 2019, artist Nicole Polonsky presents Lighting Up Time, a dynamic piece in two parts inspired by the silent film era. Northern Print hosts an interactive installation of lines of text, or ‘intertitles’, found in silent films, screenprinted on reflective banners that light up when viewers direct torches at them. Each inscription is paired with a unique sound composition by Andrew Lovett. This juxtaposition recalls early cinema and the live scores that often went hand in hand.
