In a carefully composed scene reminiscent of a sixteenth century Juan Sanchez Cotan still life, a pomegranate fruit stands out from a muted, theatrical backdrop. After a few moments, this symbolic fruit is exploded by a high-velocity bullet; seeds spilling from its disintegrating carcass in extreme slow-motion, and with an eerie and terrible beauty.
Pomegranate is part of Single Shot, a series of film and video works all shot in a single take. Single Shot is in venues throughout Manchester, including Cornerhouse, Urbis and Chinese Arts Centre. Some Single Shot pieces will also appear on outdoor screens in the city, or as interventions in other public locations
