Abstract or Description:

BOUDICCA were awarded the Stanley Picker fellowship in 2012 and throughout Boudicca explored the continued integration of digital imaging and the moving image as expressive mediums within their wider studio practice. Echoing the virtual worlds of computer gaming, The Liquid Game reconfigures the Stanley Picker Gallery into a series of connected chambers and corridors populated by imaginary bodies represented through found fragments of the natural world(petal as eyelid, thorn as shoulder, acorn as breast, etc.) or manifest as spectres of physical presence, whether draped in pools of liquid-light or manually disclosed through the curiosity of a torch-beam. Referencing the cultural history of the Gallery’s island location and the surrounding Hogsmill River - its upstream river banks once immortalised by Sir John Everett Millias in his celebrated painting of the drowning Ophelia (1851-52) - The Liquid Game is an immersive audio-visual installation that reimagines the architecture of the Stanley Picker Gallery, provoking a multi-sensory response in the viewer that in turn highlights their own imaginative and corporal presence in the exhibition space.
