At The LAB Gallery: PROJECT 101′ A Video Installation by AMBruno, November 4-25th 2011
The London based group of artists, AMBruno, presents an installation of 101 individual film works by 40 artists. All the pieces are silent and of exactly 101 seconds (1′ 41″) duration, these will be screened at The LAB on an array of monitors positioned throughout the space.
Working in various disciplines the members of AMBruno were brought together by ‘their wish to extend beyond their particular discipline, be it painting, photography, video, performance or sculpture’. Initially this exploration focused on the medium of artists’ books; a number of which are now in private and major public collections, including those of the Tate and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
AMBruno‘s commitment to experimentation led the members to take their work beyond the material temporality of the book, into that of the moving image. It was proposed that each member develop a screen work with the single formal constraint of 101 seconds duration; being more than a clip but less than a short.
