Isaac Lee-Kronick: Dancing in the Court Room in 1999
Take a look at the Court Room in Toynbee Studios in 1999 in this film by (and featuring) Isaac Lee-Kronick, son of Rosemary Lee, an artist whose projects we’ve produced at Artsadmin.
“In March I started a year-long project where I write, record and release a song every Friday accompanied by a video. This song is week 18 of that project.
Finding a subject/theme you are genuinely inspired to sing about every week is ambitious at best and delusional at worst, so I’ve had to take a stream of consciousness approach to lyric writing. In this song I was thinking loosely about the passing of time, feeling lost, and how memory can rise to the surface at a moment’s notice. So it seemed a fitting one to put together with this old footage of me and my Mum (Rosemary Lee) dancing together at Artsdmin in the Court Room. In her project One to One, in 1999, she invited five directors to make her a solo each and she asked me to be one of them. I thought it was satisfyingly poetic that in this video a mother tries to copy her son’s movements, following in his footsteps, footsteps he took following hers. Now, 22 years later I find myself devoted to an artistic practice in much the same way she still is.”
