About the Event
ABOUT THIS EVENT
As part of our current curatorial project ‘New Arrangements’, artist Jenny Baines will be presenting a new body of work as an expanded film performance, which incorporates a series of 16mm film loops projected onto free-standing structures. The works’ arrangement creates different rhythms and patterns of movement, through which the audience can freely move. In each of the 16mm films the artist performs a physical action, which collectively explore the relationship between the body, screen and space.
Tickets are FREE but limited so be sure to grab yours!
ABOUT NEW ARRANGEMENTS
New Arrangements is a collaborative project initiated by artists Jenny Baines and Anna Macdonald. It brings the two artists’ practices into contact for the first time, aiming to explore the creative potential of working in-situ with another person through active processes of thinking and making.
New Arrangements departs from the artists’ synchronous use of choreographic, pared back statements to explore the durational qualities of the body as material and film as document. Baines’ work takes the form of performance for camera, whilst Macdonald’s operates within screendance. Both artists explore the relationship of the body, screen and space and how this is navigated through the production and display of their work. New Arrangements serves to collapse the barriers between sculptural form, film and dance making. Interweaving layers of relation, creation, and a process of ‘working things out’ through doing, arranging and rearranging.
