Project #1
VIDEO: Chewing an Old Gum (2020) by Susanne Dietz and Sun Park

Ballpark members Susanne Dietz and Sun Park have been recommending online screenings via emails to each other since lockdown. Chewing an Old Gum (2020) collages email exchanges between Susanne and Sun as they recount hazy moments in seclusion, with daily murmurs, images and an eclectic selection of artists’ films.

Project #2
31-day durational performance

Susanne Dietz and Sun Park’s collaborative project Chewing an Old Gum is a 31-day moving image projection that takes place on windows of their respective studio and residence.

During the last month of 2020, Dietz and Park will be screening moving images from their personal archives and found favourites, intermixed with occasional live performances. This daily projection of mundane surprises is a ritualistic countdown to New Year.

Our window screenings are open to passersby, neighbours on our streets and local visitors, daily from 1 to 31 Dec, 6–9pm.

Location: Hackney & Bermondsey

This is the 2nd iteration of their ongoing project called Chewing an Old Gum that takes a form of never-ending conversations, maintenance activities and durational practices.
