South Kiosk will collaborate with a range of artists to build a Chronovisor.

The original Chronovisor was allegedly created in the 1960’s by the Venitian Roman Catholic priest Father Pellegrino Ernetti who worked alongside twelve supposedly world famous scientists. Ernetti described how, crowded around their invention, the time team watched speeches by Mussolini and Napoleon, scenes from ancient Rome, even the last days of Christ. However, their hoax was debunked, when it was revealed that their photo of Christ on the cross was a reversed image of a postcard from the Santuario dell’Amore Misericordioso.

South Kiosk’s Chronovisor will be put together using projectors, monitors and other analogue AV equipment. Artists will be invited to submit film and moving images which are symptomatic of their research process, focusing on found imagery rather than new image production. The input of sound and film will be fragmented by code, redetermining the order of the footage. This rejection of a linear chronology offers new readings of the formative ideas of the artists involved, leading to a broader perspective of a variety of creative research practices.
