Ant Hampton: Hitherto


For Hitherto, Ant Hampton penned a number of fantasy scenarios, based in locations around the University campus. He then found people who use the site in question, perhaps students or employees, and recited to them his stories.

After a break of thirty seconds, the people were to re-tell the stories back to camera, remembering as much detail as they could. The resulting film shows all the different interpretations that can arise from the one story, as the subjects stutter, hesitate, engage with the camera, remember certain details and forget others, and embellish the initial story with new elements.

Ant Hampton's solo projects include ongoing experimentation around 'live portraiture' with Greg McLaren as The Other People (La Otra Gente): structured encounters with people from non-theatrical milieu. He was head dramaturg for 'Projected Scenarios' at Manifesta7 Biennial for Contemporary Art and has contributed to projects by Jerome Bel and Forced Entertainment.
