DERBY.- Monocular4 is an intimate installation, first exhibited in Lofoten, northern Norway, which features a tin hut re-sited in QUAD’s Gallery space. Within the structure is embedded a film work by Seers; the narrator of the projected film is a Norwegian/English man whom Seers met by chance when travelling in Norway researching prefabricated structures.

The unnamed man has a rare condition called genetic mosaicism, caused by the fusion of two fertilized eggs at a very early stage of gestation in the womb. A sign of this condition is heterochromia – the possessing of eyes of two different colours – one of which is derived from the absorbed 'twin'. What we hear in the surround sound track is the medium of film/sound talking to us as if it has become a man – it speaks of its haunted longing to represent. Like our protagonist’s unseen brother residing in his DNA, the implication is that this haunting is written into the medium at the level of its material structure. This embodied, encoded character emanates from the digital form like a genie from a bottle. Computer generated images of particles and genes emerge as we break through the skin of appearances to the structure of matter.

Lindsay Seers works and lives in London and is represented by Matt’s Gallery, London. She studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London (BA Hons, Sculpture and Media 1991-94) and at Goldsmiths College, University of London (MA Fine Art 1999-2001). She has won several grants and awards. Recently she won the Sharjah Art Foundation Production Award 2012 and the won the Paul Hamlyn Award 2010 which supports artists at a crucial period in their career. In 2009 she won the Derek Jarman Award - an award that recognizes individual artist film-makers, she also received the Wingate Scholarship from The British School at Rome 2007/8.
