Abstract or Description:

The image makes palpable a unity in which manifold different elements are contiguous and reach over into each other.
– Andrei Tarkovsky

‘Immolation Triptych’ is a tri-partite studio performance designed specifically for its documentation through video. Engaging with the final three scenes of Andrei Tarkovsky’s film work Nostalghia (1983), 'Immolation Triptych' translates and transforms each of these three scenes through word, image, object and action as well as through the spatial design and construction of each shot. Constructed, performed and filmed at the Centre for Creative Collaboration in London, 'Immolation Triptych' reconfigures Tarkovsky’s ‘original’ Nostalghia so that it embodies a reflective state of nostalgia: one that, characterised by reverie, allows for the reconstruction and re-evaluation of historical narrative in the time of the ‘now’.
