Everything Made Bronze

Graham Ellard and Stephen Johnstone

  • Screening & Talk

Event overview

A screening programme of four 16mm films by artists Graham Ellard and Stephen Johnstone which in different ways re-make or re-imagine something else - a museum, a lost film sequence or a movie that was never made.

One of the featured films is their 2013 FVU commission Everything Made Bronze. Scenes alternate between two contrasting but related locations: Carlo Scarpa’s famous Gipsoteca plaster-cast gallery in the Museo Canova in Possagno, northern Italy, and the Venice-based plaster workshops of Eugenio de Luigi, one of Scarpa’s most important collaborators. The film is shot using a static spring-wound camera, which follows the play of light in the Gipsoteca over a number of days as it produces an endlessly fluctuating environment for the appreciation of Canova’s plaster-casts and terracotta maquettes.

A Q&A with Graham Ellard and Koyo Yamashita follows the screening.
