Burnt and scored and scorched

  • 2011
  • Douglas Gordon
  • K.364 music score, mirror
  • Each music score: 32 x 25.5 x cm (with frame)
In Burnt and scored and scorched (2011) he repeats the exercise. This time it is not images that are altered, but a musical score, Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante in E flat major for violin, viola and orchestra, k.364. The pages are burnt away to reveal a mirror. This sets up a relationship between the past (the score), the present (the reflection) and the possible future (the performance of the music), which relates directly to the film K.364 (2010).
