James Richardson – End Game

1 minute read

This piece, entitled ‘Endgame’ – was a live mis-en-scene, utilising the setting sun to act as the signifier and backdrop for the piece itself, where the boat which holds three brass players, plays out my time in the city of Lincoln, and my time as a certain kind of artist.

As the sun went down, so did the boat itself – slowly sinking into the pond as the evening progressed, allowing the audience to sit at peace and gaze upon what was happening, becoming enthralled in the narrative.

The orange sun set the backdrop for the work and behaved as the time-scale for the work, with the reflections of the water creating a diagetic environment where truth, hopefully would win out.
