TR Ericsson: Crackle & Drag: Film Index

January 24, 2014 - April 12, 2014


Taken from the final line of Sylvia Plath’s 1963 poem Edge, Crackle & Drag was a haunting portrait of the artist’s mother. Through the continual reinstallation of his photo-based work, sculptural objects and moving images, Ericsson was involved in an ongoing investigation and reinterpretation of a deteriorating archive of personal artifacts. Crackle & Drag made public a personal struggle to come to terms with the archive’s power to determine the past, even as it vanishes in time.
