About this artwork

‘Calvin & Metro’ was filmed between two stations on the Prague metro. Only the artist’s legs and arm are visible, set at a sharp and seemingly impossible angle on the moving train. Laing is interested in ways of capturing and preserving the immediacy of live performance when it is transferred to another medium, in this case to video.
