Thursday 12 December – Friday 20 December 2013
Opening: Thursday 12 December, 6-8pm
The psychology experiment known as the ‘Ganzfeld’ effect—in which a subject deprived of both audio and visual stimulus is said to involuntarily experience otherworldly visions—provides the framework for Brie Trenerry’s cinematic appropriation, restaging and indeed merging of two classic Giallo horror films from the 1970’s directed by Lucio Fulci. The anxious female protagonist from “The Psychic” takes a symbolic detour to meet the minor but unforgettable figure of the blind girl from “The Beyond” —a figure we first see from a distance standing with a dog in the middle of the road, calmly waiting for her visionary counterpart.
