This season of films have been curated in conjunction with the Artist’s collective, Transidency, whose latest show entitled UNDER/OVER runs at the FOLD Gallery during April 2010.
The programme aims to complement the themes investigated in UNDER/OVER, as well as to draw out the comparisons between the films themselves which collectively act as a body of enquiry into those same themes which include; [self & enforced] mythologising, ridiculous labour, over work/under work and the in-between, an ongoing investigation into the deceptive quality of the Earth’s iconography and the spaces of war.
London Perambulator screening with:
Jaunt [1995, 5 mins] Andrew Kotting’s ‘psychogeographical’ experiment conducted along the highways, byways and waterways of the River Thames. From Southend-on-Sea to the Houses of Parliament, Kotting’s ‘Road Movie’ of sorts see this stretch of this our fair isle though the eyes of those who work and inhabit it, but ultimately though the eyes of Kotting himself.
