VIDEOCLUB : remembered/forgotten

The Chair, Grace Schwindt A selection of international work from videoclub’s most recent call for artists’ moving image. All the works selected focus upon auto/semi/biographical content that has been made by filmmakers who are using artists’ moving image to approach their subject matter, rather than straight documentary format. Fleeting glimpses, broken narratives and the use of image over language reveals the structure of memory and recall, as a fragmented, and re-narrated/imagined phenomenon, as opposed to a simple narrative line.

Artists showing work are: Juliette Buss, Yin-Ju Chen, Aikaterini Gegisian, Ana Husman, Esther Johnson, Gazelle Samizay and Grace Schwindt

remains_guli_silberstein12 Oct at 3pm – videoclub : Fragments

Guli Silberstein – REMAINS Fragments and distortions, filters and reappropriated imagery comprise this surprising collection of moving image works. Found footage and original recordings are dispersed with twisting narratives. Bare and latent concepts, and intertwining philosophies appear to comment on violence, consumerism, and other fragmented human actions. Broken repetitions in The Horror and Ozymandias are unsettling whilst poetic, whereas FIXC’s and Nilsson’s films provide us with octane-driven feasts that comment on consumerism and our fixation with popular culture.

Artists include: Sandra Lim, Dave Griffiths, Paul Gittins, Jonas Nilsson, Guli Silberstein, Anders Weberg and FIXC.
