John Smith The Man Phoning Mum
(2011) HD video, 12 mins, colour, sound



Watch John Smith’s The Man Phoning Mum. Revisiting the original locations of The Girl Chewing Gum after three and a half decades, The Man Phoning Mum retraces its camera movements and superimposes new material upon the old. Black and white passers by from 1976 meet their colourful present day counterparts in the well-trodden street, oblivious to each other’s existence.
