Metro Supports Suki Chan - Sleep Walk, Sleep Talk

04 April 2012

To compliment celebrations taking place at the Museum of London for the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens’ birth, artist Suki Chan has an installation of five evocative, emblematic lightbox stills in the Museum’s entrance hall.  Metro is proud to have produced the wonderfully illustrative duratrans prints for this installation.

Duratrans is a rich translucent-base film that we can produce in enormous sizes; the beauty being that when lit from behind it creates an exceptional cinematic dimension to photographic stills, as observed in Chan’s images.

Hong Kong born Suki Chan’s work is inspired by ideas of freedom of expression and she is drawn to light as a physical phenomenon, and the role it plays in our constantly shifting daily experience of our environment, be it urban or rural.  The concept of Sleep Walk Sleep Talk follows the footsteps of Dickens’ essay ‘Night Walks’ in creating a dreamlike portrait of London by night. Chan’s images include hazy, shimmering panoramas of the nocturnal city, shots of skaters reclaiming the streets after dark and weary commuters on the top-deck of the night bus.  A neon text ‘When I go home the day becomes my night’, drawn from an interview Chan made with a security guard, expresses the world of night-working.

Sleep Walk Sleep Talk originated as a commission by Film and Video Umbrella, part of Free to Air, a four-year programme supported by London Councils and Arts Council England.
