PEOPLE LIKE US: Citation City
Citation City is a 42 minute audiovisual performance work by PEOPLE LIKE US which sources, collages and edits 300 major feature films in which content is either filmed or set in London – creating a story within a story, of the film world, living its life, through extraordinary times of change, to see what happens when these multiple narratives are combined… what will the story tell us that one story alone could never tell?
Since 1991 British artist Vicki Bennett has been working across the field of audio-visual collage, and is recognised as an influential and pioneering figure in the still growing area of sampling, appropriation and cutting up of found footage and archives. Working under the name PEOPLE LIKE US, Vicki specialises in the manipulation and reworking of original sources from both the experimental and popular worlds of music, film and radio.
This performance of Citation City will be preceded by a selection of short films and a brief interval.
