BRIDGIT

2016
Prodger, Charlotte
Narrative fragments sourced from personal emails, anecdotes and found text provide the starting point for much of Charlotte Prodger’s work, which encompasses sculpture, moving image, sound and performance. BRIDGIT (2016), a 32 minute film that brings together a range of short clips filmed on the artist’s iPhone over a period of a year, offers a complex meditation on the relationship between place, time and identity. Prodger’s footage – much of it near-static – includes shots of her home, the view through train windows and the observation deck of a ship, and the Aberdeenshire countryside. The length of each clip – just under four minutes long – was determined by the device’s limited storage. Prodger’s diverse footage is overlaid with a spoken narration, which consists of the artist’s personal reflections on subjects including a recent medical procedure; quotes from theorists and writers on the subject of technology and identity; and information about the Neolithic deity that gives the piece its name. Supported by Hollybush Gardens and Creative Scotland.
