Ventura (2001)

Stuart Pound has a background in film-making and computing, and digital video brought the two together. Over the past 12 years he has collaborated with the poet Rosemary Norman on a number of videos.

An experiment in personal history.The footage was shot in the London Docklands. But who is the speaker who was told that he was english? Was his mother really born in California? What was her connection with Ireland and Germany, if any? And what does the sculpture ‘black form’, in a park in Hamburg, have to do with it?
