About Frank Heath
Frank Heath uses poeticism to infiltrate complex contemporary systems of communication, modes of interaction and modern information transfer apparatuses. He is interested in intercepting and reformatting the signals, static and loops inherent in communication, and at what point they falter, short circuit and break down. Heath’s self-referential approach is imbued with a humour and melancholy that undercuts the cold, clinical technology to which he refers, and supplements the absurdity, immateriality and existentialism intrinsic to the postmodern condition. Often working with video, Heath’s most ambitious project has been The Hollow Coin, a 2016 film that interrogates the public space and incursions upon it, juxtaposing documentary footage depicting the phasing out of New York City’s payphones with an absurd telephone conversation between an actor and a stranger. Written by Goldsmiths CCA
