This film ‘Rudiments’ by artist duo Broomberg & Chanarin takes us to a military camp on the outskirts of Liverpool. Scenes we observe document the young army cadet’s daily routines juxtaposed with moments that are staged by the artists themselves. The film suggests the formative moments of early youth and childhood, which is dramatically interrupted by the absurd introduction of a ‘bouffon’. Her performance, which often teeters on vulgar is propelled by the dramatic drum rudiment soundtrack created by the American musician Kid Millions. ‘Rudiment’s was filmed by PG DoP Jeremy Valender anamorphically, and post was covered by senior editor Jesse Watt and coloured by Faith Millin. The film was exhibited at the Lisson Gallery as an extension of the major show in the Centre forContemporary Art Urjazoowski Castle in Warsaw (27 June – 6 September)

Rudiments consists of new photographic, moving image and performative works that collectively explore tensions between discipline and chance, precision and chaos, empathy and the involuntary pleasure of watching the pain of others.
