    Installation: Mark Fisher & Justin Barton – “On Vanishing Land”

    Cooly G

    Cooly G aka Merissa Campbell is the Hyperdub mainstay from South London who produces, sings and DJ’s, as well as running her own label Dub Organizer. Her two highly lauded album releases ‘Playin Me’ and ‘Wait Til Night’, as well as a series of 12″ consist of stripped down, post-garage beats, often graced by dubtracted vocals, seductions and vexations, uttered over bass booms.

    On Vanishing Land – Mark Fisher & Justin Barton

    On Vanishing Land (2013, 45m) is a magisterial audio-essay that evokes a walk undertaken by the artists along the Suffolk coastline in 2005, from Felixstowe container port to the Anglo-Saxon burial ground at Sutton Hoo.

    Fisher and Barton have conjured a new form of sonic fiction from the dreamings, gleamings and prefigurations that pervade the Suffolk coast. The work includes commissions from digital musicians, interviews and the reflections of the artists. Inspired by the cumulative force of the Eerie that animates this landscape, On Vanishing Land pursues affinities between the modernist reinvention of the ghost story in M.R. James’ Oh, Whistle, And I’ll Come To You, My Lad (1904) and the atmospheric engineering of Brian Eno’s album On Land (1982). “Themes of incursion – by unnameable forces, geological sentience or temporal anomaly – recur throughout.” (Kodwo Eshun, The Otolith Collective, Curator, On Vanishing Land)

    On Vanishing Land integrates new compositions by digital musicians Baron Mordant, Dolly Dolly, Ekoplekz, Farmers of Vega, Gazelle Twin, John Foxx, Pete Wiseman, Raime and Skjolbrot.

    On Vanishing Land was jointly commissioned, produced and curated by The Otolith Collective and The Showroom.
