Talk & Screening at Metal Southend

Daniel & Clara Screening - Metal Southend

Visionary Landscapes – Talk & Screening
6pm Thur 23rd Jan @ Metal, Chalkwell Hall
Free event

Join us for a talk and screening of moving image work by artists Daniel & Clara who are currently in residence at Metal Southend.

Daniel & Clara are two humans working as one artist on a journey of exploration of dimensions real and imagined, the results of which consist of moving image, photography and performance. In their current work they have been exploring the British landscape as a site for encounters with the mysterious, the eerie, the otherworldly and the unknown.

Merry Christmas!

Daniel & Clara

Today we are finishing off the last few jobs of the year before we hide away for a month of hibernation! What an amazing year it has been, the biggest change for us was moving to London, an experience that has been life changing! Last spring we started the Moving Image Salon, through which we have met so many incredible artists who have been a great inspiration to us, the art of moving image is well and truly alive!

A big highlight of the year was completing our latest feature film Notes From A Journey, which had its UK premiere at Slow Film Festival and was then picked up for distribution by Kinoscope, it can be watched right now on their website here: bit.ly/37caUul

It’s also been one of the best years for screenings for us, with 30 screenings, a lot of them in the UK – we started the year with a screening at the BFI and we are ending with the same, we have a short film included in the Experimenta Mixtape event on 18th Dec, details here: bit.ly/36pmt01

We have some exciting projects in the pipeline for 2020, starting with a three week residency in January at Metal Southend where we will be developing Obscura, a new project set on an Essex saltmarsh. This continues our exploration of the British landscape as a site for encounters with the mysterious, the eerie & the unknown!

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone for your friendship and support, we wish you all a merry christmas and we’ll see you for creative adventures in 2020!

Love,
Daniel & Clara

Studio Diary Series: Land | Sea | Sky at Hambre Forum

Studio Diary Series Land Sea Sky (2018, Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais)

The wonderful people at hambre have release a selection of films from our Studio Diary Series on the Hambre Forum. This selection focuses on the Studio Diaries which could be considered as landscape films. To accompany the films we have written a short introductory text about our interest in filming nature, landscapes and the weather. Watch and read here.

As a part of this invitation to release our films on Hambre we were asked to recommend another artist’s film to also be featured on the forum, we put forward a short film by Edwin Rostron whose stunning visionary animations were recently featured at the Moving Image Salon, check it out here.

Many thanks to Sebastian Wiedemann!

Love,
Daniel & Clara
