Aaron Cassidy - APOFIR-REDUX

APOFIR-REDUX is both a reclamation project and an obliteration ... an effort to decimate and scramble and an effort to reimagine a mural out of the rubble. The work uses as its source material EXAUDI’s recording of A painter of figures in rooms, commissioned for the 2012 London Cultural Olympiad. It is, like its source, a continuation of my fascination with the work of the painter Francis Bacon and its grit, violence, and twisted beauty, and in particular its depiction of faces and mouths. The work is my first ever foray into electronic sounds, and I am hugely grateful for the encouragement and assistance of Monty Adkins, Alex Harker, PA Tremblay, Simon Cummings, and Evan Johnson.
