Version Control comes alive for the opening night of IBT13
For Version Control, Tim Etchells has reworked and re-echoed Bruce Nauman’s 12-screen video installation Violent Incident. The 12 screens replaced by descriptive text, audio and a single channel video in which performers Bruno Roubicek and Lucy McCormick attempt to single-handedly re-perform the multi- screen slapstick confrontation at the heart of Nauman’s seminal work.
For the opening night of IBT13, Bruno Roubicek and Lucy McCormick also dance live in the gallery.
Tim Etchells is an artist and a writer whose work shifts between performance, visual art and fiction. He also leads world-renowned performance group Forced Entertainment.
