Scenes from Paramount Mountain - Exhibition. 2009
William Mansfield & Eddie Sharp

28th - 30th August 2009. Serial Space, Sydney.

Scenes from Paramount Mountain was the first stage development for the hybrid theatre show Some Film Museums I Have Known (ACMI, Nextwave Festival 2010, Melbourne & Old Fitz Theatre, Imperial Panda Festival 2011, Sydney.) This exhibition explored the politics of remixing and re-appropriating cinema.

Strands of open ended narrative, true stories and works of fiction, were woven together using live video feeds, budget animatronics, kinetic dioramas, a model train set with mounted lipstick camera and cheap A/V effects to create the sense of a haunted, alter-modernist, theatrical space.
