It is happening again.
Here, the Gold Ones were.
We’ve heard that before.
But this time it was flatter.

So, as we were saying.
It’s an original story.
No, this is an origin story.
Everyone already knows this.

Everywhen, here and there.
This is what we always said.
Mis-shaped and not in proportion.
As though seen for the first time.

This is an explainer: Following on from Reactor’s residency in 2021, they return with a new video installation that describes what came before. Digital animation, mobile sculpture and choreographed performance combine to please the ears and eyes. Gather round for the reveal, succumb to each and every tall tale told, even when this belief is unfounded.

Special thanks to Adam Sinclair (Animation), Lotti V Closs (Additional Modeling Support), Jim Brouwer (AV Consultant), Rebecca Lee, Alison Lloyd and NTU Fine Art students (Voices) for collaborating on Here, the Gold Ones flatter.
