Hand Grenade

by Eatherley, Gill

Film: 16mm, video 1971


Three screens of riotous abstraction, powered by a Neu! soundtrack. " Malcolm Le Grice helped me with Hand Grenade. First of all I did these stills, the chairs traced with light. And then I wanted it to all move, to be in motion, so we started to use 16mm. We shot only a hundred feet on black and white. It took ages, actually, because it's frame by frame. We shot it in pitch dark, and then we took it to the Co-op and spent ages printing it all out on the printer there. This is how I first got involved with the Co-op." - Gill Eatherley, interview with Mark Webber, 2001
