During the summer of 2001, Michael Mazière spent a period of time at Prema Arts Centre in Gloucestershire working on Delirium, the last piece in the Triptych, which began in 1996 with Remember Me, followed by Blackout in 2000.
Michael Mazière was selected through an open submission process by a panel consisting of Gordon Scott (Director of Prema), Gary Thomas (Visual Arts Officer, ACE), Josephine Lanyon (Director of Picture This) and Sarah-Jane Meredith (South West Media Development Agency).
When Michael was selected for this residency SWMDA discussed with both Michael and Prema commissioning a catalogue which could bring together images and texts relating to the Triptych. This publication is the outcome of this discussion and includes both analytical and heartfelt responses from Gary Thomas, Anna Thew, Jacopo Benci and John Conomos.
Maziere studied film at the Royal College of Art in the early 1980s, taught by Peter Gidal, author of 'Materialist Film' and guru of a structuralist filmmaking. Yet, although modernist theory is a strong influence in the film's material, its constructions and language, (is) now tempered with other elements resulting in a much more expansive consideration.
