Retroactive news: the lovely folks at Annexinema asked me for some work for their screenings at G39 in Cardiff which toured to Sheffield, Lincoln and Nottingham over the past few months.
So I sent them Nema. Here’s my text from the program:
“Nema(2014) is one a series of studies or sketches of pattern and noise as motion. The forms come from swirls of flattened grass found on an area of wasteland. Composed to be loosely isotropic – looking the same in all directions, including time – as if through cloed eyes or a microwave telescope.”
And here’s some more info about Annexinema’s Island Variations screenings:
Our programme for this weekend’s screening was originally devised for g39 gallery in Cardiff. We put out a call for submissions for moving image works loosely themed on alternative communities, isolation and islands; the response was so good that we’ve since created further events in Sheffield, Lincoln, and now Nottingham, in order to show the work. The current incarnation of the programme includes films by many Nottingham alumnae as well as artists from further afield (UK, USA, Netherlands), including Wayne Burrows with Paul Isherwood, Collective Production, Alnoor Dewshi, Tom Duggan, Michael Fleming, Lindsay Foster, Yelena Popova, Simon Raven, Marcy Saude, and Neil Thomson.
