Georgina Starr's new work "I am a Record" dissects and reveals the artist's personal, geographic and imagined environment. The work draws on everything Starr has ever recorded (on audio) since she began hearing "voices" aged 5 years old. The range of this archive covers; the rumbling of a broken radiator which she thought was speaking to her, re-enactments of secretly recorded stranger's conversation, field recordings, singing voices, paranormal telephony, family dinner conversations, spirit messages, air eddies transformed into music, interviews with psychics and movie stars, collected whistles, friend's messages from beyond the grave, love letters played via heavy metal drumming, the sound of a childhood record collection on fire.....and much more. From this extensive archive Starr has now constructed 'a record collection'.
I am a Record is a series of one-off pressed 12" vinyl records with unique painted and drawn cover artwork; many accompanied by posters, inserts and booklets.
