12 Addictions to the Cinematic Imaginary
Melanie Manchot will talk about the inspiration behind Twelve as well as the challenges arising from the relations between ethics and aesthetics in her work.
Over the last two years Manchot has worked in dialogue with twelve people in recent recovery from substance misuse, in rehabilitation communities in Liverpool, Oxford and London. Twelve is directly informed by their personal written and oral testimonies, creative conceptions, and performances within final works.
Inspired by the visual acuity of renowned contemporary filmmakers, Twelve connects and collapses individual recollections in which everyday situations, events and activities are rendered dramatic or abstract and infused with tragedy, pathos and humour.
The talk runs from 6.30-7.30pm. Complimentary drinks will be served from 6.00pm when doors open and from 7.30-8.00pm following the talk.
