Lab 34: Aaron Cassidy – A way of making ghosts

Wednesday 11 November, 12-2pm [online via Minerva]

Aaron Cassidy will discuss two recent quartets based on the work of the painter Gerhard Richter—Self-Portrait, Three Times, Standing (15.3.1991–20.3.1991) (2018–19) and Self-Portrait, 1996 (2020)—that together form the collection A way of making ghosts. Since he has given some recent online lectures about the relationship between the pieces and the paintings, and to the issues raised by self-portraits in general, this talk will instead focus on some of the more practical, technical aspects of the pieces. He will look in detail at the approach to instruments, including several newly developed performance techniques and instrument preparations, and at the organisation of material through structural mechanisms that prioritise behavioural models and modes of interaction.
