KENNY BEAN: GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE Street Level, Glasgow, until Sat 14 Sep ooo
H Zoetropes by Kenny Bean
There’s something very precise about Kenny Bean’s work. In the first of three interlinked pieces - a series of photographs of a flamenco dancer’s hands - the images have been scrunched up and flattened out before being immaculately framed. Bean is here documenting a process, salvaging the raw materials that didn’t make the grade and elevating their status through careful presentation. But it also seems as if Bean is consciously making these mistakes, and that every crease is deliberate.
In the next gallery, there is a series of photograms. Each documents the interior workings of a domestic appliance. The disembowelled white goods lie in vitrines as if Bean is playing future archaeologist, preserving the ephemera of our present, or a doctor of machines, presenting the pathology of diseased appliances. Like the preserved photographs, a rusting old food mixer is scattered in pieces inside its box, but not quite randomly, as if it has been carefully reconstructed. Finally, the flamenco dancer’s hands reappear, this time in a trio of zoetropes. All three are explicitly home-made, constructed from bicycle wheels and slightly misaligned, so that the optical illusion of motion is jerky and off-kilter. Again, however, there is an air of scientific investigation about the zoetropes, an attention to detail that nonetheless ends in failure.
Ghosts in the Machine is like a peep into the incomplete notebooks of an amateur scientist. It’s quite impossible to tell what hypothesis these experiments are meant to prove, and there are no results to publish, so we must make do with a glimpse into some mysterious research.
