Andrew Lampert: “When invited somewhere I ask my host to gather as many half-working projectors as they can find and then I ceremonially sentence them to death.” Bringing unscripted and chance elements into cinema's veneer of control, and often working in front of the audience, he foregrounds the contingency of film as a medium. Revelling in cinema as a performative environment, Lampert reclaims this space from a mass media culture to emphasize its potential for immediacy and accident – and to make each of his screenings and performances a one-of-a-kind event.
