Tate flyer for Summer Programme

Tate St Ives: All Out of Love screening

I was invited by Tate St Ives to programme Film Club on 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, collaborators Simon Bayliss and Susie Green with their new work Love Immersion and recent Falmouth University graduate Charlie Fairbairn.

The Pleasure, The Privilege, work in progress

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 –

The Cornwall Workshop

I am very pleased to have been selected as a participant for The Cornwall Workshop – a weeklong intensive residential workshop for artists, curators and writers based in the South West. The 2016 Workshop will be led by acclaimed British artist and filmmaker Ben Rivers and will focus on artists’ moving image practices, with an emphasis on analogue technologies. It will be programmed with LUX, the national agency that supports and promotes artists working with the moving image. Eleven participants were selected from open submission along with 5 invited international participants – see  –
