On selected Friday lunchtimes between April and September for our ‘Art, Class and Politics: Explorations through Film’, we will be screening a series of films created by artists, or focusing on aspects of art practice.
Selected with Film Curator Alice Butler, she will also introduce each film and moderate a post-screening Q+A.
Film details for Friday 20th May:
Ansaphone by George Barber
Ansaphone is a collection of video portraits recorded on a specially made spinning camera. However, each person’s portrait or appearance in the video is determined by the length of the ansaphone message they have left on George’s machine at one time or another. As it is based on George’s ansamachine, the people in it are chiefly friends. Most prominent are Martin Amis, Paul Smith and Suzanne Moore, who have lain down in order for George to take their portrait. *
Cézanne by Luke Fowler
Shot in and around the studio and garden of the painter Paul Cézanne in Aix en provence and also on the mountain Saint Victoire; the focus of a long running series of paintings made between 1882-1906. Soundtrack by Toshiya Tsunoda. *
