Approaching the Bloc Billboard project as print or publication in an expanded sense, COPY invited artists Nathan Walker and Victoria Grey of O U I Performance to create printed works that incorporate a live, temporal element.

As part of the resulting work COPY / / ◄ DOUBLE,  O U I Performance will perform an hour long durational action at Bloc Projects on Friday 18th May, which forms a dialogue between the performers and the printed images.

The COPY / / ◄ DOUBLE billboards portray the lens of a small glass sphere which renders the world as a scaled down inversion of itself, held between thumb and index finger, and are inscribed with cinematic subtitles. The work forms a dialogue between O U I Performance and Krzystof Kieślowski’s La Double Vie de Veronique.
