"The Changing Room
Motion Graphics sequences and digital Scenography for The Changing Room an inter-disciplinary multi-screen and mixed media live work.

"Performance and live action have been pivotal to Bruce McLean's art from the 1970s onwards. To accompany McLean's exhibition 'Another condition of sculpture' the artist presents a new live work, a chamber opera, realised in collaboration with Sam Belinfante and Lawrence Preece, in the dramatic setting of the Tiled Hall, once the Gallery's sculpture court."

Based on Courbet’s painting 'The Painters Studio', conflated with Breughel’s 'The Blind Leading the Blind', The Changing Room is a true Gesamtkunstwerk where musical improvisation is combined with a choreography of objects, video and movement.
Through the deconstruction and collision of these historical works the artists have developed a series of drawings that address the perennial artistic dilemma; how to recognise and represent what is heard and not heard and what is seen, as well as, significantly, what is invisible. The libretto is derived from Jacques Derrida’s ‘Memoirs of the Blind’ where the philosopher similarly explores issues of vision, blindness and self-representation, particularly in relationship to drawing.

'These amassing drawings function as graphic scores that will be interpreted by performers in a series of guided improvisations. The acclaimed mezzo-soprano Lore Lixenberg will be joined by performers from ‘squib-box’ a collective of leading performers dedicated to the production of radical music of all genres'" (bron: cargocollective)
