Bacon Project

This is a project that embraces all strands of my artistic practice and derives from a great passion for the painter, followed by a meticulously thorough study of his life and works. It was initially conceived with a performance space in mind but due to its scale and costs, the realization of it requires serious funding, which is an ongoing and a long-term project. In the meantime, I decided to use the artwork I developed over the course of 1,5 years and create an animated film which would not only be a unique work of art but also would be available to virtually anyone as opposed to a secluded performance. I have invited Colin Z. Robertson to this collaboration, since he is one of very few people who are equally obsessed with Francis Bacon, and his musical response to some of the images I showed him, was very much what I had in mind in terms of music.
