Same Old Scene was the third in a new rotation of works presented in the gallery foyer space.
Same Old Scene brings together a collection of pivotal moments and distilled elements from romantic Hollywood films and Westerns as well as popular music. It conjures an abstract world of possible starting points and alternate storylines using hand-drawn cardboard sets and a low-fi aesthetic. The accompanying publication takes the form of a drawn ‘comic book’ containing ideas and statements grown out of conversations about memories of film and music.
Rachel Cattle and Steve Richards have collaborated on short films and related publications together over the past five years. Their work investigates the visual language of film, philosophical thought, music and the fluidity of time and memory. Works include ‘Don’t Stray From The Path’ 2006, ‘Same Old Scene’ 2007, ‘Out Of The Dark And Into The Night’ 2008 and ‘Cosmographia’ 2010.
Their work has been have shown internationally with recent shows including: Silent Pictures, The Amie and Tony James Gallery, New York,'Yes, Yes. I know. Free School. I know.' Five Years, London, Drawing 2009, The Drawing Room, London. Their publications are stocked by Printed Matter, New York, Bookie Wookie, Amsterdam, Donlon Books, London.
