Come and enjoy Artists' Moving Image work at Southampton Film Week 2017 with Kye Wilson's new exhibition and an evening of short films presented by the John Hansard Gallery. You will also find Artists' Moving Image films screening as part of SFW: Shorts 2017 in the new category for Best Artist Film. Read on for details.
Angel:lengA - 13th - 19th November - 12pm - 5pm at God's House Tower
Kye Wilson’s new moving-image artwork ‘Angel:legnA’ employs the motifs and working methods of celebrated film-maker Andrei Tarkovsky to explore collective human experience.
Interweaving Tarkovsky’s memories and dreams with those of participants, Wilson says "I reimagine notions of self in order to demonstrate that everyone can engage with and contribute to quality art."
Kye Wilson is a Creative Lab Associate to the New Theatre Royal Portsmouth.
‘Angel:legnA’ is supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by Southampton Cultural Development Trust.
Monday 13th November Private View from 5.30pm - 8pm plus artist talk.
There past the borders of nowhere: A John Hansard Gallery event organised in partnership with Southampton Film Week - Tuesday 14th November - 7pm at God's House Tower
John Hansard Gallery presents a curated evening of artist’s film at God’s House Tower. The films on show offer a continuation of the gallery’s summer programme, one which centred around the themes of ‘…a good neighbour’, in partnership with the Istanbul Biennial 2017. John Hansard Gallery’s subsequent summer outreach activity responded to notions of home and neighbourhood, and the changes in ways we interact with one another and live in our private spheres. A stunning collection of film is offered from an impressive range of artists.
