For Artranspennine 2008 Louise Adkins will present the film of a live striptease dance performance entitled ‘The Windmills Of Your Mind’. This will be screened in a converted Victorian wearhouse at the junction of Portland and Princess Street in the centre of Manchester. It is an area of fast food takeaways, late nightclubs, karaoke and down at heel hotel rooms. In this transient urban landscape Adkins’ film uses surveillance and night vision technologies to explore the role of the spectator when watching an erotic performance.

'Windmills of your mind' was screened on Friday 20th June at 6.30 at Flat 15, 103a Portland House, Portland Street in Manchester. It was a fabulous venue for the first screening of Louise's new work, an image of which you can see above.
