A Fine Art Research Unit lecture by Simon Payne
Wednesday 20 April, 2pm
Simon Payne is an experimental filmmaker whose work involves distinctive time-structures and bold digital imaging. In the past two years he has shown programmes of his work and that of his peers at Tate Britain; the Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg; and the Contact events in London that he co-curates.
Simon also writes about experimental film and video. Recent essays include ‘Negative Light: Recent Experimental Film and Video in the UK ’ for Senses of Cinema; ‘Image Threshold: Malcolm Le Grice’ for Sight and Sound; and a series of pieces in the new book Kurt Kren: Structural Films, which he edited with A.L. Rees and Nicky Hamlyn. He is Senior Lecturer in Film and Media Studies at ARU.
For this talk Simon will present a series of recent videos and discuss them in light of systems and strategies associated with the canonical avant-garde.
