We are taking part in:
A BROKEN LINK
A survey of contemporary practice in artist film and video
Australia and UK

SYDNEY SCREENING – Golden Age Cinema – Sunday 28 May 5:30pm (showing the full UK program and a shortened Australian program)

LONDON screening – Central Saint Martins – Thursday 8 June 6pm (showing the full Australian program)

A BROKEN LINK is a survey of contemporary practice in artist film and video. The themes explored include ideas of temporal and geographical displacement, of how digital technologies bring people and ideas together but also reinforce the essence of distance and alienation.

A BROKEN LINK is comprised of two discrete programs based on location. The program is curated by two Sydney-based and two London-based curators in an attempt to explore the similarities and differences of aesthetics and conceptual concerns of artists’ film and video from two different ends of the earth. The UK program has been curated by Simon Hollington and Andrew Marsh. The Australian program has been curated by Samantha Ferris and Claire Taylor.

In presenting works made between 2007 and 2016, A BROKEN LINK surveys emerging digital imaginaries during that period. The project is a meditation on slippage and displacement, exploring how artists reconcile the local and the global within their work and how this is communicated to a diverse audience.

UK programme artists:
THOMSON & CRAIGHEAD, REBECCA MOSS, TOM DALE, HOLLINGTON & KYPRIANOU, HUNKY MARK, ROSE BUTLER, RICHARD T WALKER, SARAH SPARKES

We have a new commission in the expo 'The Act of Magic' at STUK, Leuven in Belgium from 21st February - 9 March.

Artefact is a themed exhibition and festival on contemporary visual arts, current events and societal challenges. In 2017, Artefact looks at the Act of Magic. What does magic mean today? Which role does it play as a social phenomenon? How is it used as a metaphor? And how do contemporary artists tackle the subject? From poetry to strategy, from magical object to obscure systems, from harmless distraction to manipulation: the artists in The Act of Magic investigate what enchants us today.

Participating artists: Troika (D, D, F), Verena Friedrich (D), Jens Brand (D), Eric Arnal Burtschy (FR), Marjolijn Dijkman (NL), Suzanne Treister (UK), Center for Tactical Magic (US), Shana Moulton (US), Melanie Bonajo (NL), Tim Etchells (UK), Jonathan Allen (UK), Hollington & Kyprianou (UK), Liz Magic Laser (US), Goldin+Senneby (SE), Femke Herregraven (NL), Tobias Revell (UK), RYBN.org (FR), and BCL (AT/JP).
