Evidence Locker/Retrieval Room
Two installations at Tate and FACT
18 September – 28 November 2004

The artist spent 31 days in Liverpool – the length of time for which CCTV footage is stored by the police before being erased, unless it is requested as evidence of a crime. Throughout this time she was filmed by the CCTV system.

The final work consists of two contrasting installations. Evidence Locker at Tate evokes the space of the CCTV monitoring station, and includes a soundtrack of the police log being read aloud, and CCTV footage featuring the artist obtained from the authorities. Retrieval Room at FACT reveals the evolving romance of the relationship with the CCTV staff through a daily diary and dream-like video projections.
