Face2Face was a complex installation of two synchronised videos projected on either side of a double-sided strip curtain specially constructed from projection fabric which divided a gallery at Bradford’s Cartwright Hall in 2005. Visitors to the gallery had to discover the second, hidden projection for themselves, guided only by the second, carefully zoned audiotrack.
Face2Face dealt with women’s and men’s different experiences and perceptions of love, intimacy and violence through a number of personal accounts. Only the lips of the speakers were visible and visitors had to pass through the speaking mouths to see the carefully intercut experiences of the other gender, projected on the opposite side of the curtain. As technically complex as it was intellectually and emotionally sophisticated, Face2Face was extremely favourably received by public and press alike.
