In the recent work, “Temple,” the performer has replaced the shaman/priest, and the screen/sound has replaced the performer. Pulling from the cultural dictionary of cinematic micro phrases, a ceremonial edit of symbols and signs is mediated. Richardson’s spectacular séance will weave the recorded media into a spastic orgy of cut ups in the spirit of the Burroughs/Gysin legacy to invoke a temporary temple. Together, artist and audience trade new sigils for old, beat the ghosts of many drums and relax their logic to allow their instinct to guide their memory and associations at a rate faster than reason.
