Abstract

Solo exhibition of video work.

For a decade, between 1998 and 2008, Mark E. Smith became collaborator-raconteur in a trilogy of Mark Aerial Waller’s shorts and films: Glow Boys (1998) (accompanied by the ‘paratextual’ film Interview with a Nuclear Contract Worker (1999)), featuring the poet Douglas Park, Midwatch (1999) and Resistance Domination Secret: Agamemnon (2008).

“In the true sense of the word, Mark Aerial Waller’s films are parasitic on Mark E. Smith. They’re co-dependents and Waller’s work, in turn, contaminates Smith’s,” writes contemporary art critic Jonathan P. Watts in “Collaborators in Pandaemonium.” “The connection between Mark E. Smith and Waller is reflected through the medium of their films which emerges to be compressed occultish channels for wayward historical voices and embodiments,” he adds.
