Video projection on art installation

Updated on February 7, 2015

Video projection for Victor Mavedzenge's final show at The Slade School of fine art London 2010

Video projection over installation

This video was created by Victor Mavedzenge for his final degree show in 2010 at The Slade school of fine art. The installation was called "Back stage". The video is ten minutes long and ran in a loop all day over the installation. A 10 minute performance was also conducted in the space while the video ran. A clip of the ten minute performance can be viewed in the video on Youtube here. The performance is called "The Knife" derived from a play (Territory) Victor Mavedzenge and Michael Kudakwashe co-wrote with Giles Ramsay of Developing Artists and Jon Bonfiglio for the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2006.

The screaming head

This screaming head symbol is synonymous with Victor Mavedzenge's printmaking. He developed the symbol while studying for a Diploma in Fine art at the Harare Polytechnic. He has used the symbol intermittently in his work,especially in Printmaking.

Meaning of the screaming head by Victor Mavedzenge

The screaming head is symbol of history. It is both a scream of joy and pain in their extremes. " I grew up at the verge of Zimbabwe's Independence, this way a sensitive period filled with joy, fear and sorrow. You never exactly knew what someone was screaming about as a kid until you got the facts. The scream therefore became a powerful symbol for that space between the known and the unknown".

The Installation 3D aspect

Wire sculptures were arranged within the room to give the installation a surreal 3 dimensional effect.When light fell on the sculptures,interesting shadows were cast on the walls,interacting with the projected video in a very effective visual manner. Sculptures by the artists can be viewed on his website.
