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!

Expanded Cinema Talk At The Exploding Appendix Research Group

WVS VHS Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais

On Tuesday we’ll be heading to Brighton to take part in the Exploding Appendix Avant-garde Art Practice and Research Group – this month’s event explores Gene Youngblood’s seminal book Expanded Cinema. Following a talk on the book by Bradley Tuck we will be giving a short presentation on our various expanded cinema projects, which include performances, text based films and other works in which we seek to explore the possibilities of cinema beyond the frame of the single screen. We will conclude our talk with a reading of one of our ‘motion picture poems’.

This event is free and open to all, simply turn up at 7:30pm on Tuesday 14th May upstairs at The Marwood, 52 Ship Street Brighton, BN1 1AF.

Coventry Cathedral Exhibition

OPEN PROJECTIONS_Coventry Cathedral

We are really excited to have a film included in an exhibition at Coventry Cathedral, taking place Friday 5th April. This is especially exciting as the cathedral is home to works by Graham Sutherland and John Piper, two artists whose work has been very inspiring to us.

Thank you so much to curator Daniel Hopkins for including our work in this exhibition.
