The Cyclops Cycle

Le Grice, Malcolm (2004) The Cyclops Cycle. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Le Grice, Malcolm

The Cyclops Cycle is a 1-hour, 3 projector video installation. Three of the seven sections were shown in an earlier version in 1998 but were substantially re-edited in 2001. The first presentation of the full Cyclops Cycle continuous installation in its final form was in 2004 at the Triskel Gallery, shown as a special feature installation in the 49th Cork Film Festival (Catalogue in Portfolio) together with a two programme retrospective of earlier work. The Cycle which comprises: Joseph’s Newer Coat; Even the Cyclops Pays the Ferryman; Still Life and Lunch in Little Italy; Jazzy Jazzy Jazzy; Neither Here Nor There; Travelling with Mark; and Cherry; has been exhibited at a number of venues since 2004. At the Kiasma Museum it was also shown in the context of a parallel retrospective at the Finnish Film Museum. At IVAM, Valencia, it was shown as part of a four day Master Class (Taller de Artista).

The installation explores issues that have formed part of my published theoretical work, in particular, the re-positioning of the spectator in the context of multi-projection where each screen develops different versions of the source material through digital editing and image transformation. It also explores the transformation of diary sourced material into metaphor and allegory related to theoretical work published in the essay ‘The Chronos Project’ (Chapter 20 - page 251 in my Book 'Experimental Cinema in the Digital Age' - BFI Pubs. 2001 ISBN 0-85170-873-0).

Through 'Cyclops Cycle' I have reviewed continuities between new multi-projection video and my earlier expanded film work helped by their inclusion earlier works as installations in two historical review exhibitions:' X-Screen', December 2003 at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMOK), Vienna (catalogue , ISBN 3-88375-761-6); and 'Behind the Facts'. February 2004 at the Fondacion Juan Miro, Barcelona (catalogue ISBN 84-923925-8-4).
