On the 31st May we’ll be launching the first of our Moving Image Salons at Film and Video Umbrella, London.
The Moving Image Salon is a monthly gathering in London for artists working in the fields of moving image and experimental filmmaking. It is intended as a relaxed and open space for conversation and exchange about contemporary moving image practices, a networking event and critical forum.
Each salon features an invited guest who will present and discuss their work, this month’s guest will be filmmaker Toby Tatum.
Full details on the first event can be found here.
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.
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.
As many of you will know, we spent 2018 as artists-in-residence at Exploding Appendix, for this we embarked on an epic in depth interview about our work, focusing on a different project each month and digging deep into the themes, processes and ideas relating to that particular work. This was an incredible, at times intense, but thoroughly rewarding experience. The first 11 interviews are now complete and available to read online; the 12th instalment, which will cover the two feature films we are currently editing, will be conducted later this year and will be included in a book compiling all the interviews.
For now here’s the 11th interview, in this instalment we discuss the 109 short films we made in 2017/18. Read here
Thank you so much to everyone who has been reading and following our work over the past year and of course many thanks to Exploding Appendix’s Bradley Tuck for his ongoing support and collaboration!
