a short film by mike coles & alex paterson with music specially created by the orb plus accompanying exhibition by mike coles In 1956 three young children took a trip from Battersea to Greenwich and the journey was beautifully captured on super-8 film by their aunt. In Battersea Bunches Mike Coles and Alex Paterson have revisited this journey, merging echoes of the past with fragments of the present to create an emotional and powerfully surreal memory. Ghosts of childhood in the fifties haunt the cavernous and derelict Battersea Power Station of today, fragments of lost time drift along the river Thames blending with snatched visions of the future. Set to a haunting musical soundscape written and recorded by The Orb this film suspends us in a twilit, dreamlike world of lost memories. It has its funny bits too. Mixing stills from the film with contemporary footage Mike Coles has created a series of stunning, frozen snapshots of this haunted magical world.
