A video I made for Hannah Peel premiere’s today on @goldflakepaint ahead of Hannah’s show at St Leonards Church, in Bethnal green next week. I had a lot of fun making this, Hannah and I collaborated on a series of live visuals for her recent tour over the summer, and the edit for Tenderly brings together our audio-visual world based on the idea of memory, and memory-loss, shown through a timeline of interference and distortion.
“Home movies, looking back and remembering; even if it’s looking back at happy memories, has this kind of power to bring out an overwhelming sadness and joy all in one breath,” Smith says, introducing the new video. “Hearing voices we can no longer hear, and seeing faces stare into the camera just like they’re looking into your own eyes brings back so much – like a forbidden wish.”
