I was invited by Tate St Ives to programme 'Film Club' for 18 August as part of the gallery's 'Summer of Art'. Titled after the ‘Air Supply’ hit of 1980, All Out of Love, the selected films draw on the exhaustion and frustration of endings, but also feats of effort: actions driven ‘out of love’The screening included works by Margaret Salmon, winner of the first Max Mara Art Prize, Turner Prize nominee James Richards, Naomi Frears - selected for Exeter Contemporary Open 2016, collaborators Simon Bayliss and Susie Green with their new work 'Love Immersion' and recent Falmouth graduate Charlie Fairbairn. 

The Pleasure, The Privilege (wip)

Screened as part of 'The Voyeurs' in St Ives last week, 'The Pleasure, The Privilege' is the starting point for a new work. Based on short sequences unified through sung vocals from The Smiths song 'There is a light that never goes out', laid over ambient sounds of insects and birds. The developed film will utilise shifts between devised and incidental vignettes joined together to reflect an emotive pull and heightened observation of immediate surroundings. A snippet from the film is here -
