In her first work using moving image, poet Lavinia Greenlaw investigates what it means to lose your memory and disappear into the present tense.
The leading makers of artists’ moving-image
A parable of the pleasures and perils of indulgence, and a wicked, waspish skit on a world where greed is good, and it’s OK to give in to every temptation.
Echoing this year’s curatorial theme of Neither One Thing or Another, both artists’ proposals examine the steadily blurring line between the real and the artificial, and the increasingly intimate interplay between physical objects and their virtual counterparts.
Based on Larsen's film of the same title, this new publication brings together beautiful photography, three new essays and transcripts of interviews, overheard conversations and river shanties.
Film and Video Umbrella makes moving-image works by artists. For three decades FVU has led the way in championing new creative talent and promoting innovative ideas. During that time we have commissioned many of the foremost figures in the field, working in close collaboration with a diverse range of venues, nationally and internationally. Browse our project page to find out more and view clips of the works.
We aim to run at least one open submissions opportunity per year. Please sign up to our ebulletin for updates.
