Exercise (Djibouti) 2012

Athletic Interpretation

Audiomotion were delighted to collaborate with artist, John Gerrard on his large scale cinematic title 'Exercise (Djibouti) 2012' in collaboration with Modern Art Oxford and formed as part of the London 2012 Festival to celebrate the history of modern Olympic and Paralympic Movements.

Originating in found documentary images of US military exercises in Djibouti (Horn of Africa) and informed by research into athletic achievement, the work makes use of emerging technologies to reflect on the relationship between competitive sport, military training, theatrical performance and dance.
