Dawn of the Rainbow

Katie Goodwin

2012, edition of 25 (plus 4 Artist's Proofs)

€650 framed

Katie Goodwin continues here her fascination with film, by investigating the pioneering use of colour in one of the first Technicolor films. In this series her work appropriates the original film leader from the 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz". The film starts with the drab real world in black and white and suddenly converts to colour as Dorothy finds herself in the land of Oz. Goodwin's work celebrates that moment in cinematic history taking the original test reel given to projectionists who had never previously used colour film, and re-editing it in synthesis with the originally comissioned sountrack by Wayne Urquhart that was in the end not used in the Wizard of Oz. In the end she presents only original elements from the 1939 film and yet not a single one of them was seen by the public. Available unframed at 600 euros.
