Duchamp and Sons were invited to create films in dialogue with the Josiah McElheny exhibition The Past Was A Mirage I Had Left Far Behind. The group explored the concept of abstraction, which the work references, as a way of responding to the sights and sounds of the surrounding area. East End Abstract was organised in partnership with No.w.here, a local Artist run space which has 16mm film facilities unavailable anywhere else in the UK. Duchamp and Sons worked at No.w.here experimenting with analogue techniques including, film destruction, photograms and cameraless filmmaking.
The final films were be screened in the gallery on 12 July 2012
