SAINTS ON FILM

11th November 2013

NOT JUST ANOTHER SAINT PERFORMANCE NIGHT AT HARDY TREE GALLERY IN LONDON.
IT WAS CALLED
SAINTS ON FILM
I changed into a white robe and Saint Erkembode screened the film he made on my back while I read a collaborative story about traveling through London to find a Doom Drone concert. The film had a drone loop and featured some of the words from the story. The words from the story sometimes appeared on my back. On the white robe. I read the story to the audience with my back to them. I was on a step ladder so the film could be projected onto my back and my head.
In the story I read we went through the USSR to get to the Doom Drone concert. We got lost. A lot. We rode kangaroos and looked for chunky ice cream and ate hot milk over chips etc. etc.
it is based on a true story. The story is called YOU’VE BEEN PUSHING SINCE LAHORE (written by Chris Gutkind, me(marcus slease), and Saint Erkembode.
S
ome fun and interesting films on the night too. A Burroughs cut up film from 1966 and marshes and meshes and a crow surreal film and a man who played live organ electronic music to accompany his film live in the gallery.
Outsider art. No academic bullshit!
