The project pursues a malleability in truth, the impact of perspective on belief and the potency of imagination.
Reality is slippery and imagination a fearsome thing.
Part installation, part museum, part story exchange, THE GHOST PROJECT embarks on a discussion between audience, communities and artists to unearth the culturally ubiquitous phenomena of ghosts, spirits and hauntings. Although most often presented as an amalgam the project has three distinct methodologies reflected in individual series.
THE GHOST PROJECT : SUFFICIENTLY BREATHLESS captures actions or performances which occurred on the site of the presentation but at a previous date. The actions (recorded as video and binaural recording) are reinserted into the space for the visitor to experience. By splicing time and location into itself the series speaks to a tradition of mystery in technology and the ease with which fear can be conjured.
THE GHOST PROJECT is a series which, like many of Anna Tregloan's projects, is consciously environmentally responsible in methodology and outcome. By approaching the project as a suite where each stage of the development gives tangible results and where parts are continually reused and re-contextualised as well as sourcing locally and second hand and gifting locally at conclusion THE GHOST PROJECT is part of a developing oeuvre of sustainable practice.
