A Killer's Loose But Nobody's Talking

 

A Killer’s Loose But Nobody’s Talking was an excerpt from Suspect of Black Coal (which premiered in Munich in Fall 1980), presented by Richard Gallo and featuring Sheryl Sutton (performer), Philip Haight (design), Victor Ginsburg (video), and Martin Fischer (music). This work was based on experiences lived through the “mechanical vision”—the recording of images with the unconscious mind—which operates when an individual faints, is dizzy, and manifests dementia and delirium, among others. Gallo was interested in a kind of experiential investigation that rejected the rational and ordinary vision of reality to embrace oblivion.
