Returning to the forest after its presentation under Birmingham's Spaghetti Junction in early 2012, Graeme Miller's Track is an environmental work and moveable participatory installation that throws landscape through 90 degrees and sets it in motion. For the Theatre de Brétigny's Dedans Dehors season, Track will be presented for one afternoon in the Forêt Régionale d'Etréchy, 50km to the south of Paris.
Face-up and camera-style, the viewer is smoothly trundled by their individual ‘grip’ on a slow journey along a 100 metre length of dolly track and invited to gaze upwards. For the participant, the work creates a total shift in relationship with whichever environment it is installed, whether built or natural, indoor or outdoor. For the onlooker, that space is transformed by the vanishing tracks and the continuous, hypnotic motion of the viewers and the people pushing them.
Track is co-produced by Entre Cour et Jardins and originally commissioned by home live art and Wandsworth Council Arts Team for The Shimmy.
