Images from 'In the Wake of a Deadad', Andrew Kötting, 2006.
In the Wake of a Deadad (The Installation) takes the form of 65 separate films showing the inflation of large inflatable effigies of Köttings’ Deadad and his Deadad’s Deadad (his Grandad) in various locations around the world.
Each location has a significance to his life his Deadad’s life or his Deadad’s Deadads’ life. Together they have travelled far and wide from the French Pyrenees to the Faroe Islands and from The Valley at Charlton Athletic football club to the cemeteries of Janitzio and the Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico. Each film represents a year of the Deadad’s life and will be running simultaneously on 65 monitors as ‘deconstructed documentary’.
